The ego has landed back in North London, with Emmanuel Adebayor unsurprisingly declaring himself as the greatest striker in the land and hopes to be leading Tottenham’s attack this season as soon as he has regained full fitness.
The former Arsenal, Real Madrid and Manchester City striker, put his CV out on display for his challengers at White Hart Lane and declared, “There are stats that speak for a man in football. Today I will not tell you that I’m stronger than Soldado or Defoe or Lamela. Do a Google search, you will see the goals I’ve scored in my career,” Adebayor shared in an interview with the Evening Standard.
Adebayor, widely tipped to be the fourth choice striker at the club, said, “We are now four in the attack, I do not know who ranks first, second or third but I know at the end I will be the first and that is the most important.”
‘The Deluded One’ concluded, “Two years ago, I was top scorer and best passer at the club. Last season was not great, it is true. I do not want to relive that this season but there is no revenge or anything. This season, I have not started yet but rest assured that when I start I will be working very hard.”
