Adebayor: My family called me rubbish after Tottenham exile

Emmanuel Adebayor says his career hit an all-time low under Andre Villas-Boas at Tottenham, with his own family and friends doubting his ability.

The Togo international was ordered to train with the reserves under the Portuguese after rejecting chances to leave White Hart Lane during the summer, making just one 45-minute cameo before Villas-Boas was sacked.

The story is too old to be commented.
