Emmanuel Adebayor has admitted his relief at bringing his recent goal drought to an end after scoring in Tottenham’s 5-0 win over Newcastle, reports Sky
The Togo international had not scored since the 1-1 draw with Chelsea in December, a barren period lasting 713 minutes – on Saturday however, he found the net for Tottenham’s fifth goal after assisting the first four.
“I had a tough time,” he told Spurs TV. “I didn’t score for a few games but I came back and scored and I made a lot of assists. It’s good for the confidence. When you go through four, five, six games without scoring, you start questioning yourself.”
On his partnership with Louis Saha, he added, “It was easy because I know him from France and I know how he plays. I know where he goes on the pitch and we talked a lot on the pitch. That made it easy for us.”
