Arsenal managing director Keith Edelman has hailed the talent-spotting ability of manager Arsene Wenger.

Edelman said: "Arsene's developing a great squad of players and they are performing ahead of everyone's expectations. I remember when Adebayor first played for us and I got five letters of complaint asking: 'What have you bought him for?'

"The skill of Arsene Wenger is to see what talents the players have and how he can develop them. He is a unique manager."
