Tottenham's Adebayor feels more comfortable under Redknapp

On-loan Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor feels current manager Harry Redknapp has a better knack of relating to his players than some of his former bosses.

The Togo international has played under the likes of Arsene Wenger at Arsenal, Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid and Roberto Mancini at parent club Manchester City but he indicated to BBC Sport's Friday Focus that he prefers the tact his Spurs gaffer takes.

"I had a good understanding with Mr Wenger and Mr Mourinho. The Mancini thing didn't work out quite well but I don't want to go into that," he said.

"Harry is a fantastic manager who knows how to talk to players and just tells you that 'you know you are good footballers'.

"You just need that belief from your own manager to tell you 'I believe in you, now go out there and do your thing' and I think that is what Harry has got a bit more than the other managers.

"For me at the moment, everything is going pretty well, I'm happy playing football again and I've played in six games - five wins and a draw - so I cannot complain."
