Adebayor Believes He Can Help Defoe Improve

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has claimed that he can help turn team mate Jermain Defoe into the Premier League’s top goalscorer if he is given a chance to play with him, as reported by the Daily Mirror.

Adebayor signed permanently for Spurs this summer after a successful loan spell last season but has been out with a hamstring injury in recent weeks. However, the striker is now fully fit and is keen to break into Andre Villas-Boas’ team, but it seems the new boss prefers just one striker in his side that has had an indifferent start to the season.

Defoe on the other hand has had a bright start to the campaign, netting four league goals already and it seems Adebayor will struggle to get in front of the England striker at present.

“I have a huge respect for Jermain Defoe,” Adebayor told the Daily Mirror.

“I’ve told him that if I can come back and make him the top goalscorer in the League, then I am happy.”
