Adebayor urges AVB to let him help Jermain Defoe fire Spurs to the top
Tottenham Spur's Emmanuel Adebayor has begged manager Andre Villas-Boas to let him help Jermain Defoe become the Premier League's top goal scorer.
"I have a huge respect for Jermain Defoe," the Daily Mirror quoted Adebayor, as saying.
"I've told him that if I can come back and make him the top goalscorer in the League, then I am happy," he added.
According to the report, Defoe has already fired four Premier League goals as Tottenham's lone striker this season.
But, having returned to fitness from a hamstring injury, Adebayor is now desperate to help Defoe get even more.
Defoe, who moved to Spur in 2004, also spent a year at Portsmouth after he was deemed surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane, but he returned to Tottenham in the January 2009 transfer window.
He made his England debut in 2004 and to date has made 51 appearances, scoring 17 goals.
