Adebayor feels confident Tottenham fans now with him

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor hopes he's done enough to win over fans.

A goal against Arsenal will almost certainly make him a hero in the white half of north London..

Adebayor said: "I saw some of the Tottenham fans in the hotel where I was staying with Real and they refused to shake my hand. For me, that's fair play..

"Now I have joined the club, we all have to work in the same direction. They have to support me and I have to give them goals so they can be happy. That is what I am here for..

"I am a footballer so I know the only way to have a good relationship with the fans is to play well..

"I can throw my shirt to them all I like but if I am not playing well, they will not support me. For me, it is just to give to them the shirt..

"It is important the fans like me. When you are working in a community, you always want to be loved. I am very grateful and glad that everything is going very well here."
