Emmanuel Adebayor has revealed that he would be interested in a move to Tottenham Hotspur.
The Manchester City striker is on loan at Real Madrid and scored twice against Spurs in a 4-0 UEFA Champions League quarter-final win at the Bernabeu.
Spurs fans were at the centre of unwated attention when a certain song was sung which Adebayor claimed was racist.
“I heard about the chants and I felt so bad because before joining Real Madrid, my first choice was Tottenham,” said Adebayor.
“When I heard the songs I didn’t take it seriously. I didn’t take it in a bad way at all but it was bad because people today have to realise that we are footballers. Today we play for this club and the next day we might end up playing for them.
“I would go there and sign for them. Maybe those fans were furious because I was scoring against them. Maybe they were thinking like that because Adebayor was taking them out of the Champions League and ending their dream of getting to the final.”
“Fans have to try to control their emotions, as we do as footballers,” he added. “They have to tell the fans: ‘please, try to control your emotions. We are all human beings’.
“What is the point in going into a stand and singing a song that you know is racist and then going out into the street and saying to me: ‘I’m not racist, come to Tottenham’.
“Football is a game. Don’t get me wrong, there is money and other things in it too, but it’s still only a game.”
