Adebayor Compares Harry Redknapp To Jose Mourinho

By on September 20, 2011

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor says manager Harry Redknapp is similar to his former Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho.

The lanky forward has already admitted Mourinho told him to move to White Hart Lane this summer and Adebayor can see similarities between the two.

“I would say Harry [is similar] to Mourinho because of the way he treats players and gives you confidence,” he said.

“When I went to Madrid that is what I got.

“That sensation when Mourinho said: ‘Adebayor we know you are creative, we know what you can do on the football pitch’ and he said ‘go out there and enjoy yourself – I cannot tell go left or go round because you know what to do on the football pitch.’

“I had the same discussion with Harry and he told me the same thing.

“For me as a footballer, that is what I need.”

The former Togo striker scored two goals on Sunday as Tottenham demolished Liverpool 4-0.

      G8-2 hear from you Theo, although I would suggest you keep pretty quite at the moment, there’s not much for you to shout about. Also what would you know, have you been managed by either Jose or Harry?? Thought not, get back in your armchair mate!
