Spurs Striker Emmanuel Adebayor Handed Shock White Hart Lane Lifeline By Stand-in Boss Tim Sherwood

Togolese marksman had been made to train with the kids by AVB so far in this campaign. 

Interim Tottenham Hotspur head coach Tim Sherwood has immediately recalled previously out-of-favour front man Emmanuel Adebayor to the north London club’s first team, according to reports in the Daily Mirror.

The lanky Togo international had found himself frozen out of the side by previous manager Andre Villas-Boas after refusing to move to Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 during the summer, with Adebayor claiming at the time that he turned down the chance to join the German giants because he did not want to lose his big-money loyalty bonus from the club.

However, the 29-year-old has only featured for 45 minutes for Tottenham in the Premier League so far in this campaign, when Villas-Boas brought the striker on at half-time in the club’s recent 6-0 mauling by Manchester City at Eastlands.

And it was the Portuguese’s continual refusal to even consider utilising a player who was earning a whopping £190,000 per week in his first team that ultimately cost the young coach his job at White Hart Lane earlier this week.

But now it appears as though stand-in boss Sherwood wants to hand the forward a lifeline in the capital by featuring Adebayor at some point in Wednesday night’s Capital One Cup quarter-final against West Ham United, with a view to then even then starting the attacker against Southampton on Sunday in the league.
