Spurs defender Kaboul: Why Adebayor is again playing well

Tottenham defender Younes Kaboul has revealed why Emmanuel Adebayor has hit top form under manager Tim Sherwood.

Kaboul believes Adebayor will perform at his best only if he feels he has the trust of his manager.

He told the London Evening Standard: "The thing with many players of African heritage is that we work a lot through confidence.

"If you give confidence to someone like Ade, he will repay you so much more. He will give you the best, and that is what is happening now. Every player can always do better, but he is performing very well and we need him.

"The thing with Emmanuel is that he has always been a top player. He has always been up there, and he is not someone I have ever seen as an average player."
