Andre Villas-Boas has revealed that Tottenham chartered a private jet to ensure Emmanuel Adebayor made it back in time for yesterday’s 2-1 win over Newcastle.
Adebayor infuriated some Spurs fans this week when he waited until five days after Togo’s elimination from the African Nations Cup before travelling back to London even though he is the club’s only fit striker.
Villas-Boas said earlier this week that he wanted Adebayor back in training on Friday, but the 28-year-old did not land back in England until 6pm that day so missed the session at the club’s base in Enfield and had to sit on the bench in yesterday’s game.
Indeed the only way Spurs could get their man back to Britain was by hiring a plane for him
“Yes, (we sent a jet to get him),” the Spurs manager said.
“He arrived in Luton yesterday around 6 o’clock and then joined the team at the hotel.”
