Emmanuel Adebayor has promised to try and win back the Tottenham fans after ending his first team exile with a return at their Manchester United match.

Adebayor admits he has come through a ‘dark moment’ and has fallen from favour at a club where he was a goal hero this time last year. The 31-year-old Togo international made his first appearance for the club for almost two months – during which he returned to Africa to address family problems – in Sunday’s 3-0 defeat away to Manchester United. Adebayor returned as a late substitute at Old Trafford.

While he was out 21-year-old Kane has reinforced his position as Tottenham’s first-choice striker.

Adebayor said: “I’m very happy and pleased for Harry Kane, who has been doing fantastic. In football, we all have our moments. He is a young lad that came out and at the moment, I think he is the only one that can save our season, like I did the last season.

“I went through a little bit of a dark moment in my career but now I am back training hard and that’s it,” he said.
“A lot of things went wrong. We are all human beings. We all go through a lot at certain time of our lives.”
He added: “I think I have learned from it. I went through a lot of family issues. Now it is behind me and I am back on the football pitch. I am very glad to be back.
“I am available. I’m not 21 years old any more. I am 31 and I look at things differently. I just have to help my team and show respect for them and show respect for the club.”
