Emmanuel Adebayor Will Lead Tottenham Back to Champions League Football

Emmanuel Adebayor celebra 002 Emmanuel Adebayor Will Lead Tottenham Back to Champions League Football

Fact: The Spurs signing of Emmanuel Adebayor will lead Tottenham back to Champions League football.

Adebayor provides a goal scoring presence in the middle that the Spurs have lacked the past two seasons. Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon will have another option too look for when Totten are on the counter attack. Also, Adebayor has the ability to link up with Rafael Van der Vaart and Luka Modric (provided he stays put) and use their creativeness to break down opposing backlines.

Most importantly, not only did Adebayor play well last season at Real Madrid; he has plenty of experience playing against the strong defenses in the Premier League and won’t wilt in the face of them.  He can use his strong frame to create space in the box, which lets him use his deft touch to score goals.

There is also the theory that after being sent out on loan two consecutive seasons, Adebayor will be playing with a chip on shoulder this season to prove to Manchester City that he should still be one of the forwards for the Blues.

Tell us what you think. Is this fact or fiction?
