Emmanuel Adebayor: I can’t see Arsenal winning any trophies
Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor claims he cannot envisage Arsenal winning a trophy in the near future
Emmanuel Adebayor says he “cannot see” Arsenal winning any silverware in the near future.
The Tottenham Hotspur striker, who scored 62 goals across four seasons with the Gunners between 2006 and 2009, feels that his former club are unlikely to end their seven-year trophy drought this term.
“I think we all know it is a long time since Arsenal won a trophy,” he told the Sun. “I have a huge amount of respect for all the players there now. But to win a trophy is not so easy.
“The players at Arsenal are good but sometimes you need more than good to win a trophy. You also need luck. You never know but the league looks over for them and the Champions League looks tough, so I cannot see them winning any trophies.
“You also need people who say, ‘OK, I will give my life on the pitch’. That is rare in football.”
