Not many Arsenal fans know this, but Emmanuel Adebayor can see into the future! Either that, or he is talking out of a part of the body that rarely sees any sunshine. Adebayor left Arsenal for Manchester City in 2009, but didn’t make it there and they finally manged to offload him to Tottenham this summer after a long loan spell. Adebayor has a part time job of trying to wind up anybody and everybody, so it is no surprise that he has been talking about Arsenal before the North London derby today.
“The players at Arsenal are good, but sometimes you need more than good to win a trophy, you also need luck. You never know, but the league looks over for them, and the Champions league looks tough, so I cannot see them winning any trophies.”
Wow, did he work that out himself? Who knew that it was tough to win the Champions league? So tough, in fact, that Tottenham can’t even get in it. With Adebayor’s long list of winner’s medals consisting of one Spanish cup, he isobviously an expert in how to win a cup.
Maybe the glare from all of Tottenham’s trophies has dazzled him, but he seems to have forgotten that there are two more trophies on offer in England, and Arsenal are in the quarter finals of one and haven’t even started the other. Any more pearls of wisdom, Manu?
“You also need people who say, OK I will give my life on the pitch. That is rare in football.”
I am sure that Arsenal and Man City fans will remember the occasional game when Adebayor felt like putting in 100 percent effort and won’t feel that he is a hypocrite in any way. Save your breath for today, mate, you are going to need it. If you get picked that is.
