Young Gunner Emmanuel Adebayor has clearly had time to reflect on an evening where passions were running a little too high at White Hart Lane. The official Arsenal website reports that Arsenal’s top goalscorer has apologised for his part in an altercation with team-mate Nicklas Bendtner, before other members of the team intervened.
“We are a strong unit and what happened last night against Spurs will strengthen our desire and determination to compete for other targets,” he said.
“Overall I think that we should have been more calm during the game and although I was pleased to get a goal back for the team when I came on, I am sorry for the disagreement with my team-mate Nicklas.
“We are both passionate about this Club and sometimes that can be projected in the wrong way. It was a mistake. We want to focus on the games ahead and rely on our squad’s great togetherness to achieve a fantastic season.”
Will this incident mark the turning point in Arsenal’s season or make them stronger as a result? Or was it relatively meaningless anyway, considering Arsene Wenger fielded a weakened team for the match?
