Spurs star Emmanuel Adebayor recalled by Togo for match with Liberia

The Tottenham forward may feature in tonight's match after being dropped for the game with Ghana.

Spurs striker Emmanuel Adebayor is back in the Togo squad for their upcoming match with Liberia, just days after being dropped by his country.

The troubled Tottenham forward has had a difficult 12 months, having found himself slip from main man at White Hart Lane under Tim Sherwood to dropped by Mauricio Pochettino within a few months of the Argentine's arrival.

Much documented personal problems with his family have only made it harder for the former Arsenal and Manchester City to concentrate on his football, and Spurs have allowed the 31-year-old time off from training in order to turn things around.

But those troubled times looked to have infiltrated his international career earlier this month when Togo boss Tom Saintfiet dropped him and two other European based players for not joining up with the rest of the squad in time.

Adebayor went on to watch Togo lose to Ghana from the stands, but his recent Instagram messages indicate that he his now back involved for the Sparrow Hawks.

The striker may now be involved in his country's opening qualifying game for the African Cup of Nations, when they take on Liberia on Friday.

Spurs fans will be hoping Adebayor turns things around, even if it is merely to ensure they can try and sell him for a reasonable price before the end of the transfer window.
