Benoit Assou-Ekotto has hailed the impact of Scott Parker and Emmanuel Adebayor at Tottenham.

Both players arrived in the final days of the summer market.

Assou-Ekotto said: "The quality of players we have in every position makes this easily the best squad I have played in and we have that winning mentality now, too.

"Almost every player is an international and we have been lifted by the arrival of Scott Parker and Emmanuel Adebayor.

"Scott is a natural leader. The first day he was with us, you could tell he was a very positive guy.

"He motivates the whole team and has been a great addition, while Ade has played for some of the world's best clubs and has great experience."
