Emmanuel Adebayor wants permanent switch to Real Madrid
Wednesday 06 April 2011
Having netted a brace for Real Madrid last night, Emmanuel Adebayor is hoping he has done enough to secure a permanent switch to the Spanish giants.
The Togolese striker is currently on loan from Manchester City and his goals in Madrid’s 4-0 mauling over Tottenham in the Champions League takes his tally to five for the season.
Competition for places in Jose Mourinho’s squad is stiff with Gonzalo Higuain – Madrid’s leading scorer in the last two seasons – back after injury and Karim Benzema expected to return from a hamstring injury soon.
Adebayor will be hoping his performance last night will act as a reminder of his talent.
Asked if he wanted to stay at Madrid after yesterday’s game he said: “Of course I do.
"I don't know at the moment [about my future]. I just keep going working hard in training. I still have one or two months left so we will see."
He added: “"It [yesterday’s game] was my best game for Real Madrid.
"When you join a new club the most important thing is to score. It's always special to score in the Champions League. I have to keep working hard now, keep going and keep working in training to progress."
The former Arsenal man scored Madrid’s first and second goals last night with Angel Di Maria and Cristiano Ronaldo rounding of the rout.
