Danny Rose hails Tottenham’s ‘new signing’ Emmanuel Adebayor
Danny Rose describes Emmanuel Adebayor's successful return to the Tottenham first-team as a "new signing"
Danny Rose has described Emmanuel Adebayor’s successful return to the Tottenham first-team as a “new signing” for the north London club.
The striker has netted four goals in five games since being restored to Spurs’ starting line-up, including the opener in Wednesday’s 2-1 win over Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Considering he didn’t play a game from pre-season until a few weeks ago, his energy levels have been brilliant
The 29-year-old saw his first-team opportunities restricted under former boss Andre Villas-Boas but has been given a new lease of life under new manager Tim Sherwood.
And Rose has been thrilled to see the striker return to form.
“No disrespect to Andre but playing one up front has been a bit frustrating and hard for [Roberto] Soldado at times,” Rose said. “It is nice that he has got a bit of help up there with Adebayor.
“He has been like a new signing. He has scored four goals which is brilliant for us. Considering he didn’t play a game from pre-season until a few weeks ago, his energy levels have actually been brilliant.
“There were no questions about his attitude during his first season under Harry Redknapp and I can’t speak for last season because I wasn’t here. When I came back pre-season, his attitude was fine.
“Obviously there was a bit of a disagreement between him and Andre but it is finished now and we are all grateful he is back in the team.”
