Real Madrid striker Emmanuel Adebayor has warned his teammates not to underestimate Tottenham's Peter Crouch.

Adebayor, on-loan at Real from Manchester City, admits he's a big fan of Crouch.

He said: "When I was playing in England I always loved a lot of Tottenham players, especially Peter Crouch. He is not that quick but he is very tall, believe me, even taller than me!

"He just has this ability for dribbling, doing everything in slow-motion, he is very good, and in the air there is no way to win the battle against him. He will cause lots of trouble to us, we need to manage to win the header because as soon as he starts winning the header in our area it will be very difficult for us."
