Emmanuel Adebayor slates negative atmosphere at Tottenham…
Emmanuel Adebayor has slated the negative atmosphere at White Hart Lane and claimed that he and his fellow Tottenham stars would rather play away than face constant booing.
Reports in the Daily Mail explain that Adebayor has launched an extraordinary attack on Tottenham supporters and claimed the players are no longer made to feel welcome in their North London home.
Adebayor, who took an extra minute to come on as a substitute in the 2-1 defeat by Stoke because he decided to change his boots when he was waiting to get on, insists the atmosphere is negative.
The Tottenham forward, who went on to say that the fans should show him more respect for everything he has done in his career, said: “When you are playing in front of your own crowd you want them to support you, but now it is like going through a sad moment and your family not welcoming you home.
“That’s the worst thing ever because you have nowhere to go. At the moment I don’t know whether we should play at home or whether we should play away.
“(At Hull their next game) At least you know I am going to be having the majority of opposition fans booing me rather than our own fans booing me. And I am not just talking about me, I am speaking on behalf of all the players.
“I think it might be better to play away from home at the moment because at least we know beforehand we are guaranteed to be booed because they want their home club to win. But when you are playing at home and your own fans start booing you after a few minutes then it is harder.
“So instead of booing people, which will make it even worse, I think it is sometimes better to support them and give them what they need to perform on the pitch.
“And right now, to tell you the truth, I think a lot of players when they put on the shirt and go out on to the pitch, are finding it hard in the head. Obviously I have been through a lot in life so I am used to it.
“Obviously I was on the bench against Stoke and, though I could not see everything as clear as night, I could see that nobody wanted the ball. It’s hard for the players.
“It’s not their fault and it’s not the fans’ fault either because the fans want to see a result, the fans want to see a response and things are not going our way at the moment. We just have to fight as a team and as a club to find a solution. The quicker the better.”
