Emmanuel Adebayor has admitted that he would be welcome to a move to Tottenham Hotspur.
The former Togolese international, who scored twice to help current side Real Madrid knock Spurs out of the Champions League last month, would welcome the chance to join up with Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane despite claims of racist chanting during the quarter final enocunter at the Bernabeu.
Talking to Sky Sports News, Adebayor said “I heard about the chants and I felt so bad because before joining Real Madrid, my first choice was Tottenham.
“When I heard the songs I didn’t take it seriously. I didn’t take it in a bad way at all but it was bad because people today have to realise that we are footballers. Today we play for this club and the next day we might end up playing for them.
“I would go there and sign for them. Maybe those fans were furious because I was scoring against them. Maybe they were thinking like that because Adebayor was taking them out of the Champions League and ending their dream of getting to the final.”
Any move to White Hart Lane would be likely to cause controvesy due to Adebayor’s stint with North London rivals Arsenal but with William Gallas making the switch across the great divide last summer, Redknapp wouldn’t be detered from making a move following the success of the Frenchman in the heart of the Spurs defence.
Adebayor has made a total of 33 appearances for both Real Madrid and Manchester City this season scoring 10 goals in the process
