Pochettino reveals ‘good relationship’ with Tottenham outcast

first_img Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor Mauricio Pochettino insists he still has a good relationship with Emmanuel Adebayor despite leaving him out of the first-team squad since his deadline day move to West Ham fell through.Adebayor was hoping to get his career back on track with a move across London after agreeing a loan switch to Upton Park.But Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy is believed to have blocked the transfer as he didn’t want to part fund his salary as he was playing for a rival.The former Arsenal and Manchester City striker has now been left out of the squad and didn’t even make the bench for the Europa League game against Fiorentina on Thursday night.But Pochettino says he has not fallen out with Adebayor and will continue to make his decision on the best strikers available to him.The Spurs head coach said: “It’s a good relationship [with Adebayor].“The only problem is I need to pick 18 players for every game. Now I pick Harry Kane or Roberto Soldado. But the relationship is good.” 1last_img
