Adebayor jets in

Andre Villas-Boas has revealed that Tottenham chartered a private jet to ensure Emmanuel Adebayor made it back in time for Saturday's 2-1 win over Newcastle.

Adebayor infuriated some Spurs fans this week when he waited five days after Togo's elimination from the African Nations Cup before travelling back to London, even though he is the club's only fit striker.

"Yes, (we sent a jet to get him)," the Spurs manager said. "He arrived in Luton yesterday (Friday) around 6 o'clock and then joined the team at the hotel."

Villas-Boas has remained calm when questioned about Adebayor's failure to return earlier all week.

The Portuguese said the former Arsenal striker had "issues" to deal with following his country's exit from the tournament.

If he was angry at the striker's actions, he was not showing it publicly on Saturday.

"It was obviously good to have him," said Villas-Boas, who brought Adebayor on in the second half.

"He helped the team (get) the result so it is good to get him back.

"It's very difficult. First he was authorised to come back on Friday. Some issues arose that have put that comeback in jeopardy, but he still was in time to come back and make an impact from the bench."
