Assou-Ekotto twists the knife? 'Ade form shows AVB was wrong'


On loan at Queens Park Rangers, the full back remains an interested party to Tottenham Hotspur affairs.

Recent statistics indicate that resurgent Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor, 29, is one of the most in-form players in the Premier League.

Taking data from his last four appearances alone, the towering Togo international has returned three goals and one assist from 349 minutes of competitive action - an efficiency striking rate of a goal/assist produced every 87.25 minutes.

With a shooting accuracy of 62%, Adebayor is proving to be a fundamental asset in the renaissance Spurs are enjoying in the fresh appointment of Tim Sherwood following the termination of Andre Villas-Boas' managerial incumbency at White Hart Lane.

Having scored against Manchester United earlier today, Wednesday, a match that Tottenham won 2-1, Adebayor also affected the scoreline against Stoke City, where he returned an assist, and versus Southampton, where he netted a brace.

Indeed, his effectiveness appears to be a contrast to the mis-firing nature of Roberto Soldado, who fans even dubbed Loldado on Twitter today.

Benoit Assou-Ekotto, sent on loan to Queens Park Rangers, believes this is evidence of how AVB was so wrong about Adebayor's talents and about how much of a key contributor he could be in a race for a top four finish.
