Adebayor is the only forward in Tottenhamâ€™s squad with the natural attributes to play as a lone frontman in Andre Villas-Boasâ€™s preferred 4-2-3-1 system.
"Itâ€™s a big loss for us because he has a lot of quality,â€ť said Gallas. â€śHe can keep the ball, he can score, and having him means we can play the long ball or the short ball.
â€śAgainst Arsenal it was really difficult to stay in the game because Adebayor was sent off but in other recent matches, like against Manchester City and Chelsea, I think weâ€™ve missed something. We have to work hard again and try to come back.â€ť
