The striker was jeered on his first outing in over two months at the weekend.
Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor was jeered by sections of the home crowd at White Hart Lane when he made his first appearance for the club in over two months against Sunderland at the weekend, but the former Arsenal man believes he has nothing to prove to his doubters according to the Mail.
There has been a suggestion in some quarters surrounding Tottenham that Adebayor’s performances have fallen off a cliff now that the Togolese is not playing for his future or for a new contract, whilst he also accused fans of making it difficult for the team by booing them at home during the course of this season.
With Harry Kane putting in the performances and finding the back of the net on a regular basis, Adebayor is likely to have his work cut out playing his way back into Mauricio Pochettino’s plans, but if the striker’s performances do pick up he has insisted that it will not be down to pressure from the Spurs crowd:
“For me, I am not here to win any fans back. I am here to do my job as a professional. I just want to play football and enjoy myself. I know if you do good, they will applaud you. I know if you do bad, they will boo you. It is as simple as that.”
“A lot of people say I always play for contracts — at the end of the day, we are all footballers. This is my life, this is my work, this is what I do to feed my family. At the moment I have a contract with Tottenham, I am committed to the club and I will always give my best to my club.”
