Prior to Spurs’ 5-1 win over Sunderland, speculation was rife that Sherwood – who only took over the first-team in December – would be relieved from his duties at the end of the season.
However, upon netting twice during the clash with the Black Cats, the Togolese hit man sought to celebrate with the manager by saluting him on the sidelines, and he has now called on the club to take his head off the chopping block.
“I am playing and scoring goals, I would hope he stays,” Adebayor said.
“When everyone forgot about me he gave me back my life. I am very grateful and I owe a big thanks to him.
“But I am not the chairman or the owner of the club. No matter what happens I am a professional footballer and just want to do my job for the club.
“As a team we are going through a difficult moment, but we just have to keep fighting for the club.”
Adebayor has credited Sherwood with resurrecting his career at White Heart Lane this term after struggling to get in the side under previous manager Andre Villas-Boas.
