Ade Banished To Spurs Juniors

When Emmanuel Adebayor returns to England from Togo he will find he has been banished to the Tottenham Hotspur juniors.

The lanky striker has been in his home country on compassionate leave, following the death of his brother.

He is yet to start a competitive match for Spurs this season, and in his absence, new striker Roberto Soldado has become the London club’s main hit-man, with Jermain Defoe in his regular role as super sub.

It seems as if Ade is now considered to be way down the pecking order at White Hart Lane, because he will be forced to pay his dues with development players once he is back in town, rather than be welcomed back into the senior squad mix.

"At the moment Ade is not with us, because we have granted him authorisation to stay up until Monday in his country for personal reasons, so he's not going to be involved against Norwich [on Saturday]," Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas said on Thursday.

"Up to when I find it appropriate, he will train with the development team."

Meanwhile, exciting new Spurs signings, Erik Lamela and Christian Eriksen, are in line to make their debuts for the club this weekend.

Ahead of the match against the Canaries- when all eyes will be on how Spurs shape up having spent over £100 million on new players with money banked from Gareth Bale’s sale to Real Madrid- AVB says the club is focused on a top-four finish this season, and that a title challenge is not quite realistic yet.
