Tottenham Hotspur lost to Crystal Palace in the FA Cup on Saturday.

Emmanuel Adebayor returned to White Hart Lane on Sunday afternoon, and Tottenham Hotspur fans made it clear what they think of him (see photo above).

The Togo international striker left Tottenham in September and joined Premier League rivals Crystal Palace in the January transfer window as a free agent.

The 31-year-old did not do a great deal during his time at Spurs, who are better off without him in the squad.

On Sunday afternoon, Adebayor played against Tottenham for the first time since leaving them last year.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City striker started the FA Cup fifth-round tie at White Hart Lane in North London.

The striker played for 76 minutes, as Palace won the game 1-0 to progress to the sixth round of the competition.

Adebayor will hope to play an important role for the Eagles in the FA Cup, especially now that the London outfit have a good chance of winning it.

Palace will take on Championship side Reading away from home at the Madejski Stadium in the sixth round of the FA Cup.
