Spurs striker Emmanuel Adebayor has vowed to fight for his place on the club’s wage bill, as rumours abound about his potential departure from the club.
The Togolese striker has seen first team opportunities hard to come by under manager Mauricio Pochettino and reports in the media have linked him with a move away from White Hart Lane, potentially to replace Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke.
The striker spoke to the media today however and confirmed his intention to do everything in his power to keep his place on the club’s wage bill.
“Last season wasn’t great,” admitted the former Arsenal and Manchester City forward. “But coming back to pre season I feel rejuvenated. I earn a lot of money at this wonderful club and there’s no way I’m throwing that away.”
“It would be easy to give up and just say ‘Okay, it didn’t work here’ but there’s no way I’d get higher wages anywhere else. Spurs is my financial home, I couldn’t just turn my back on that.”
The striker also confirmed that he had been preparing for the season ahead by actively pursuing new expensive hobbies to take part in while his teammates play matches.
“I’ve got an opportunity now to really begin the season with momentum. I’ve bought a really lovely Porsche, I got flying lessons and I’ve just recently purchased about 800 PlayStation 4 consoles.”
“I really feel optimistic about the season ahead,” he added.
