Spurs boss losing patience with the enigmatic Emmanuel Adebayor.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino is losing patience with underperforming striker Emmanuel Adebayor, report the Mirror, after the former Arsenal star hit out at the club’s fans for the negative atmosphere that he believes they created at White Hart Lane.
Spurs have endured a frustrating start to the Premier League season and could well be out of the race for Champions League qualification already after a 2-1 defeat against Stoke City at White Hart Lane last weekend, prompting calls for Pochettino to shake up his underperforming squad in January.
Adebayor, who has just two goals this season, lost his place to youngster Harry Kane for the Stoke game and it is seeming increasingly likely that Pochettino will cut ties with the Togolese striker who has rarely showed his full potential for Arsenal, Manchester City or Spurs despite a huge amount of potential.
One potential stumbling block to the club’s plan to offload Adebayor could be the striker’s exorbitant wages, believed to be in the range of £170,000 per week, and it will be hard to persuade a club to take the player off Spurs’ hands due to his lack of form and reputation as a disruptive influence in the dressing room.
