Bale full of superlatives for Tottenham new boys Adebayor, Parker

Tottenham winger Gareth Bale has spoken highly of two of the North London clubs summer signings following yesterday's 4-0 win over Liverpool.

Emmanuel Adebayor and Scott Parker have had an immediate impact since joining Spurs last month and their performances in two Premier League wins has not been lost on a delighted Bale.

"Adebayor is a great character," said the Wales international. "He gets along with everyone. He has lifted the spirits in the place.

"He is a good character to have in the dressing room and we need someone like that so it's a great addition to our squad and hopefully he can keep on going.

"He is a lively, bubbly character and it's great for him to be here. The longer he stays the better. On the pitch he has been fantastic.

"He can play the ball on the floor, in the air, and he has scored three goals in two games and that's exactly what we needed.

"He and Jermain Defoe have struck up a good partnership too and hopefully they can continue to do that."

On Parker he added: "Scott is a leader. He shows that on the pitch. He is aggressive and he plays with his heart on his sleeve.

"He rallies us up all before games and gets us motivated so they are two great signings for us and they have shown that already on the pitch. We have a better team now than last year."
