Pardew: Adebayor could be our best ever
Crystal Palace manager Alan Pardew has lavished praise on new signing Emmanuel Adebayor following his impressive week in training.
Adebayor had been a free agent since his release from Tottenham in September but Palace swooped to sign him on a performance-based deal last week.
The Togo striker has represented the likes of Real Madrid, Tottenham, Arsenal & Manchester City to name a few.
The ex-Newcastle coach has been impressed with Adebayor’s output since joining the Eagles ast week.
“It’s fantastic for the football club. He’s really trained hard and well this week,” Pardew said of Adebayor.
“His quality, his contributions to training and his presence [have lifted the dressing room]. It’s hard to put your finger on it. He looks terrific.
“If I was a Palace fan I’d be absolutely overjoyed because if we get him anywhere near his best, this player is of a level above most players to have ever played for this football club.
“You could argue that Brighty was our best striker and he can’t even lace Ade’s boots!”
Adebayor could make his debut in Tuesday’s Premier League match against AFC Bournemouth as Pardew confirmed he will be included in the squad.
