Tottenham hero Adebayor: Redknapp just like Mourinho

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor says manager Harry Redknapp is similar to his former Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho convinced Adebayor about moving to White Hart Lane last month.

"I would say Harry [is similar] to Mourinho because of the way he treats players and gives you confidence," he said.

"When I went to Madrid that is what I got.

"That sensation when Mourinho said: 'Adebayor we know you are creative, we know what you can do on the football pitch' and he said 'go out there and enjoy yourself - I cannot tell go left or go round because you know what to do on the football pitch.'

"I had the same discussion with Harry and he told me the same thing.

"For me as a footballer, that is what I need."
