Report: Tottenham's Pochettino laughs at Adebayor question

Is Emmanuel Adebayor's Tottenham Hotspur career now a laughing matter?

Tottenham Hotspur head coach Mauricio Pochettino's family big fans of Harry Kane, but Emmanuel Adebayor is not high on their list, report The Mirror.

The Argentine was speaking to the paper about his brother being over from South American to watch the weekend's 2-1 win over QPR, in which Kane scored twice.

The Mirror reported: "Pochettino laughed – “maybe it’s difficult for you to guess” – when asked who his brother’s favourite player was. He laughed even more when another joker suggested it was Emmanuel Adebayor."

Adebayor is far from anybody's favourite player at Tottenham at the moment, the striker has even pulled of an unintentional disappearing act over the past month.

He was in the headlines on transfer deadline day, when Spurs were reported by the BBC to have blocked a move from West Ham to sign the striker on loan.

Unwilling to let him join a rival, they have not found a use for the 31-year-old themselves. Adebayor has not played a single minute for Tottenham since his move to the Hammers was vetoed.

It's clear how Mauricio Pochettino feels about him, and barring an injury crisis it looks hard to see how he will get a chance to avoid his season being a write off, with just two goals to show to his name all year, the last of which came in October.
