Redknapp relaxed that Tottenham’s Adebayor will keep cool against Arsenal

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is confident that Emmanuel Adebayor will remain calm as he returns for the first time to his old club Arsenal as a Spurs player.

Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp is confident that Emmanuel Adebayor will remain calm as he returns for the first time to his old club Arsenal as a Spurs player.

Spurs won the reverse fixture 2-1 back in October, but the game was marred by a series of unsavoury chants from both sets of fans.

The Arsenal fans' hostility towards Adebayor stretches back to 2009 when, shortly after leaving the club for Manchester City, he sprinted the length of the pitch at Eastlands to celebrate in front of the Gunners supporters in his first game against the London club.

"I'm sure he will enjoy going back there," Redknapp said.

"He played well against them at home this year so I don't think it will be a problem.

"I suppose he will get some stick, that goes with the territory when you go back to your old clubs, but I'm sure he can handle it.

"Hopefully he will keep his cool and that's what he needs to do."
