Jermain Defoe has spoken out against Andre Villas-Boas’ decision to make Emmanuel Adebayor to train with the Tottenham deveopment squad.
Adebayor has been on compassionate leave following the death of his brother and returned to Tottenham last week.
The quotes from Defoe are disappointing, he should not really be questioning AVB’s decisions in public when he is hardly first-choice forward himself. He needs to be getting his head down and pushing Roberto Soldado for the striking berth in the side.
“I don’t think it helps the team, to be honest,” he told Sky Sports News.
“Someone like Mani, he’s a great player and has played for some of the top clubs in the world and is someone that we’re going to need. We will need his goals and what he brings to the team.
“He’s keeping himself fit, he’s a happy guy, he loves his football, and hopefully he’ll be back soon with the team.”
