Tottenham Hotspur media round-up: Eriksen on what Spurs want to prove

A round up of news stories this morning related to Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen has told the club’s website that the side will do better after the loss to Stoke last weekend.

Spurs were well beaten 3-0 by Mark Hughes’ side in one of their flattest performances of the season so far.

He says there is a collective will running throughout Tottenham’s team to improve and get better as a unit.

“We had a really off day against Stoke but we want to get back on track now against Hull. We’re a young team but everyone wants to prove that we can do better – and that we are better – than what we showed at the weekend,” he said.

The London Evening Standard has reported that Tottenham transfer target Jay Rodriguez has signed a new contract with Southampton.

Spurs were thought to be interested in the forward who has been out of action throughout this season with a knee problem.

He’s signed a four-year deal to commit his long term future to the Saints.

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has been quoted by ESPN accusing his brother of stealing shirts.

The forward says his brother sold one of his prized pieces of memorabilia which meant a lot to him personally.

Adebayor has previously had family issues, with the accusation that he was forced to pay family members a wage based on his success, as covered by EuroSport.

“I had the huge privilege to swap my shirt with Marc-Vivien Foe. May his soul rest in peace. When I got back to Togo, I put that shirt in a secure place. My brother found a way to steal that shirt and sold it,” he said.
