Andre Villas-Boas sends Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor to train with the youth team

Emmanuel Adebayor’s reputation has been on a slippery downwards slide since leaving Arsenal all those years ago.

The now Tottenham striker is currently in Togo with AVB citing personal reasons, and will return to London on Monday.

However, the 3rd choice striker has been informed that he won’t be joining up with the senior squad upon his return.

Instead, he’ll train with the youth team until Villas-Boas thinks it’s ‘appropriate’.

A rather large blow to his hopes of first team football this season.
