Tottenham keeper Brad Friedel insists Emmanuel Adebayor has rejected suggestions his team-mate is a disruptive influence in the Spurs dressing room. Adebayor has been booed by some Spurs fans recently after commenting that the team would rather play away, which compounded a perceived lack of interest from the highly-paid striker.
"Emmanuel is a very big character," said Friedel. "He's got a very strong ego and he can deal with [the booing] but I do agree with what Mauricio [Pochettino] was saying - it does bring a negative energy.
"A lot of people want a far sexier story than it actually is. Adebayor is not a bad lad."
