Adebayor is finally back in the first team after a summer of turmoil.
Tottenham Hotspur manager Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed that unwanted striker Emmanuel Adebayor could feature against FC Sheriff in the Europa League.
The 29-year-old was nearly sold this summer after failing to impress Villas-Boas when the Portuguese ace first took over in the summer of 2012.
Yet despite this Adebayor was not picked up by any potential suitors, with Turkish side Besiktas coming the closest before pulling out over the forward’s high wage demands.
With Roberto Soldado having been bought by Spurs from Valencia this summer for £26m and Jermain Defoe also at the club, the Togo international has not played a single minute this term.
Yet AVB may finally have given up and will allow Adebayor to convince the 35-year-old the attacker is still worthy of a place.
“Adebayor has traveled and there’s a chance he could be involved,” the boss was quoted by the Mirror.
There is every chance that Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has had a quiet word with the head coach, pointing out the fact that if the north London club are paying Adebayor colossal wages the least they can do is play the African occasionally.
It hasn’t always been this way for the striker, who impressed two years ago whilst initially on-loan at Spurs from Manchester City, scoring 17 Premier League goals and providing 11 assists.
Yet since making a £5.5m permanent move to White Hart Lane in 2012 that form has dropped away and Adebayor is viewed by many in the game as lazy and something of a mercenary.
