Who’s going to win the Golden Boot? The form guide suggests it’s Emmanuel Adebayor who has scored in nine consecutive league matches for the Gunners. However, the official Arsenal website reports that far from talk up his chances of landing the award, the Togolese striker is keen to heap praise of his main competitor Cristiano Ronaldo. The Manchester United winger has also notched nineteen goals in the Premier League this campaign and reminds Adey of playing on the computer.
“He is a player I like to watch,” admitted Adebayor. “He has a lot of quality and watching him is like watching something else, it is like playing on the PlayStation sometimes.
“He is an amazing footballer and I show him a lot of respect for what he has done this season. There are not a lot of players, especially midfielders, who can achieve what he has achieved.
“The Golden Boot is something I would like to do as a footballer but the most important thing is that I want to achieve something as a team. At the end of the day, if I win the Golden Boot and the team does not win anything, I cannot see me enjoying myself. It would be better to win the title.”
Wouldn’t it be great if a player came out and said the exact opposite? That they would rather win the Golden Boot than win the league. Maybe last year’s winner Didier Drogba secretly thought it; after all, he’s hardly showing any loyalty to the Blues right now with his outspoken comments.
