Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor does not harbour any ill feelings towards former manager Andre Villas-Boas.
Adebayor had lost favour with AVB while at the club and found himself training with the U21’s. However, under interim manager Tim Sherwood, Adebayor has found himself back in the starting line-up and finding the back of the net on regular occurrence, scoring three goals since the new manager has come in.
Still, despite AVB disregarding Adebayor, the Togolese international wishes him all the best in his future endeavours.
“I'm not here to judge anyone - he's [Villas-Boas] a great manager,” said Adebayor.
“I just have to keep going, look forward and play my football.
“Everything happens for a reason - maybe he thought I was no good any more, maybe he thought I looked sluggish in training, a bit tired - you cannot judge him, he tried his best for his team.
“There is no way for one minute I think he does anything for the club to lose a game.
“I cannot say he has done anything for us to lose 6-0 to Man City. For me I think he has tried his best, if it doesn't work his way, that's football.
“So hopefully the next one for him, will be a good one from him, I wish him the best of luck because he's a great man.”
Adebayor went on to add that new manager Sherwood has provided him with the confidence to succeed.
“He [Sherwood] told me to get out there and play my football and I know I'm going to play,” added Adebayor.
“As soon as I know I'm going to play my thought will be, okay how am I going to score tomorrow, it's not about, am I going to be in the squad. Two months ago my head is, 'am I even going to be in the squad?'
“Everything that has happened is down to him as well as he put big confidence in me and I think the rest of the players as well.”
