Adebayor is the only forward in Tottenhamâs squad with the natural attributes to play as a lone frontman in Andre Villas-Boasâs preferred 4-2-3-1 system.
"Itâs a big loss for us because he has a lot of quality,â said Gallas. âHe can keep the ball, he can score, and having him means we can play the long ball or the short ball.
âAgainst 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 weâve missed something. We have to work hard again and try to come back.â
