Arsenal ace Adebayor shrugs off Drogba, Inzaghi comparisons

Arsenal strike-ace Manu Adebayor has shrugged off comparisons with Chelsea's Didier Drogba and AC Milan forward Pippo Inzaghi.

Adebayor, again on the mark last night against Newcastle, told arsenal.com: "This year I've had a chance to start all the games and just try to make goals.

"At the moment, everything is going into the net. Everything is going the right way for me and the fans are singing my name. I am just enjoying myself.

"Since the beginning of the season I have been working and working, and you can see what's happened. Now I have the secret, and just want to carry on working to the end of the season and the end of my career.

"I have had a chance to talk with a lot of people. They have all told me I have good qualities, I can jump high, am strong and can run fast. I just have to work hard a bit more than before, and it will pay off.

"The most important thing is to keep my head on my shoulders and my feet on the ground, keep on doing what I can to work hard for the team.

"I am not here to say whether I am as good as Drogba, as good as Inzaghi. The most important thing for me is doing my job. People will always compare you to people they want to. It is for others to say that.

"The most important thing for me is to keep on getting goals and playing my part on the pitch."
