Adebayor Joins Tottenham Hotspur On Loan

Emmanuel Adebayor celebra 002 Adebayor Joins Tottenham Hotspur On Loan

Tottenham Hotspur have signed Emmanuel Adebayor from Manchester City on a season-long loan.

In a brief statement from Tottenham, they confirmed that the former Manchester City, Arsenal and Real Madrid striker has joined the White Hart Lane side. There’s no word yet whether both clubs have agreed for the Togolese player to sit out this Sunday’s clash between Tottenham and Manchester City, but I would presume that Adebayor would instead make his debut in the next match after that.

Tottenham is in a desperate need for a quality striker, so the loan signing of Adebayor couldn’t have come at a better time. In Tottenham’s performance last Monday against Manchester United, the Lilywhites were very weak up front despite having a significant amount of the possession during the first half at Old Trafford. It seemed that whenever Spurs had a chance to score, their strikers were too indecisive and that momentary loss of concentration gave Man United defenders a chance to close down the opportunity.

Based on Adebayor’s track record at Real Madrid and the need that Tottenham has for a quality forward, I predict Adebayor will be a very positive acquisition this season as long as the striker can get enough playing time and as long as Redknapp has patience. As we saw when Adebayor played for Arsenal in the past, the striker would go through hot and cold spells.
