Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood has hailed the impact of Emmanuel Adebayor, after the forward scored the opening goal during a famous 2-1 win at Old Trafford, reports talkSPORT.
The former Manchester City and Arsenal forward had found himself frozen out under previous manager Andre Villas-Boas, but has been welcomed back into the fold following the appointment of Sherwood.
The 29-year-old has been superb since coming back into the side, scoring four goals in five games, with his most recent an excellent header past David De Gea to put Tottenham 1-0 up and on their way to an excellent 2-1 win at the home of the Champions.
And Sherwood has been full of praise for a striker he feels has all the attributes to be one of the Premier League’s top scorers.
“He can do everything,” said the Spurs boss. “He’s one of the best strikers in the league, we know that and we’ve just got to keep him going.
“It’s not just his work rate, because you expect a professional footballer to work hard, we know he’s got that capacity, his endurance is amazing and his quality on the ball is fantastic.
“But it’s not right to single out just one player today, there were many out there who played fantastically.
“We dug in towards the end and showed the heart and character you need when you come to places like Old Trafford.”
