Emmanuel Adebayor has become a major player for Tottenham since this arrival in the summer transfer window on a loan deal from Manchester City. Even though it is very likely that he would be returning to Manchester City at the end of the loan deal, Harry Redknapp has to thank the big Togo striker for the impressive performances his side has managed to extract. Tottenham are currently in the second position in the table. Even though they were once expected to challenge for the Champions League spot, they are extremely close to winning the title itself. Only Manchester City are ahead of them in the race for the Premier League title.
It is certainly a position that Harry Redknapp would not have expected at the start of the season. One of the reasons for the impressive performances of Tottenham has to be the striker Emmanuel Adebayor. He scored his fifth goal of the season in the match against West Brom, and it is a clear sign that he is loving the life in London once again. He was suffering from problems of various magnitudes at Manchester City. However, Emmanuel Adebayor has once again proved that he can be a top player at a top club.
It is thought that Harry Redknapp has been one of the influential factors in bringing the best out of Emmanuel Adebayor. It is a fact that has been accepted by the player himself. “For me it’s always special to have a manager like him. He has given me confidence, has given me my life back. He tells me before every game: ‘Adebayor – go out there, you know what you can do, just enjoy your football. If you can score goals, score goals, make assists, keep doing your thing,’ and that’s it,” Adebayor said.
