And Adebayor, who scored 14 goals in 25 appearances in 2013/14, talked up Eriksen’s qualities and work ethic backed Eriksen to be even better next term.
“He’s a great talent and a great professional,” Adebayor told Tottenham’s website.
“He has great vision too. He trains hard every day, early in the morning does his gym work ready to train and before the game you can see how he prepares.
“His contribution this season has been unbelievable.
“It’s his first season in the Premier League and he will only get better next season.”
