Arsenal's Adebayor: I'm now bigger, stronger
Arsenal star Manu Adebayor has revealed he's added several kilos to his frame in recent months.
But extra training has seen him claim the title of a heavyweight striker in the top flight with eight goals.
"I needed to do something," said Adebayor, now 13.5st. "I needed to build up my muscles to take the blows. You have to in England.
"When I got going, I was a lot more powerful. There is no comparison with before. Here, you don't take creatine, only vitamins to recuperate. But we work twice as much.
"I had to progress. I used to take two metres to control the ball. But now the fans are seeing a new Adebayor."
