Adebayor hopeful of Sherwood stay
Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor has said that he hopes manager Tim Sherwood will remain in his post next season, Sky Sports reports.
Under former manager Andre Villas-Boas Adebayor was given just one substitute appearance in 26 matches, the boss favouring the striking services of Roberto Soldado.
Since Sherwood took over in December, the Togo international has proven that he still has what it takes to perform at the highest level and is hopeful he will still be playing under the boss next season.
"Hopefully he stays, but I am not the chairman of the club so I can't tell you anything about that," said Adebayor.
"We will see what happens in the future.
"No matter where he goes, I will always keep him in my heart and I have a huge respect for him - as a manager, as a friend, as an ex-footballer, because he knows what it takes to be a footballer.
"He respects everyone equally, and for me he is a great man and a great manager."
Despite the 30-year-old looking likely to leave the club earlier in the season, Adebayor has insisted that he is happy at White Hart Lane.
The former Arsenal forward revealed that he is just looking forward to the future and hopes to work hard for next season.
"I just want to forget the bad moments and look to the good ones and the good games I have played and learn from that, and work hard for the next season," Adebayor added.
"Hopefully I will have a proper pre-season, because for the last three years I haven't had one. It's very difficult for a player not to have a pre-season.
"I'm definitely looking forward to that one and hopefully this will lead to my best season ever. I have the quality and a big belief in myself. I know I can do it and I will do it."
