Emmanuel Adebayor is still good enough to be of use to a side in the Premier League after being released by Spurs, according to his national team’s coach, Tom Saintfiet.
The Togolese forward left the London club by mutual consent in September after a long summer of transfer rumours and speculation surrounding his future.
Due to being a part of the Spurs set-up as the last window closed rules dictate that he’s unable to be registered for a new side until January, and there have already been links with clubs such as Aston Villa.
And Saintfiet believes that the 31-year-old is still good enough to play for one of English football’s top tier sides and that he’s “motivated” to prove himself:
“I think he is very motivated to prove, after what happened in Tottenham, that he is still a player who can add something to any team in England,” he told the BBC World Service.
Adebayor scored 41 goals in 106 outings for Spurs, but was a divisive figure among the club’s supporters, who were critical with his attitude and perceived lack of desire.
