Adebayor acknowledges below-par output

10 May 2013 07:17

Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor has admitted to having a 'difficult season' with the north London club.

The Togo international has started just 16 league games for Spurs this season, scoring four times, and has failed to replicate the form that earned him a permanent move to White Hart Lane following a successful loan spell last term.

But having overcome a series of niggles that kept him sidelined earlier in the campaign, and full of confidence following his wonder strike against Chelsea, the 29-year-old is determined to give everything he can during the remainder of the season.

"Don't get me wrong, it's been a difficult season for me with injuries but I feel I'm getting fitter now and it's strange, I'm getting fitter and it's the end of the season," he told the club's official website.

"We've got two games to go and I will give everything I've got left in the locker."

Adebayor scored one goal and set up the other in a 2-2 against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge on Wednesday, which keeps Spurs' UEFA Champions League qualification hopes alive, and the former Arsenal striker was delighted with his contribution.

"It's good to come here, to score a goal, get an assist and get a point for the team. Even at 2-1 we had to believe we had the quality to score," he said.

"Clint Dempsey came in, Gylfi (Sigurdsson) came in, we know with that quality we can score at any time. In the end we scored late and we wanted the third goal, but it didn't happen for us."
