Adebayor lends backing to Sherwood

Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor said he hoped Tim Sherwood would stay on as manager amid speculation over his future.

Sherwood saw his side thrash Sunderland 5-1 at White Hart Lane on Monday night on a day a report claimed he would be replaced in the summer regardless of results.

The boss himself has declined to comment on his future, but Adebayor, who was on target twice and has been a resurgent figure since Sherwood took over, backed him.

"I am playing and scoring goals, I would hope he stays. But I am not the chairman or the owner of the club. No matter what happens I am a professional footballer and just want to do my job for the club," Adebayor told Sky Sports 1.

"When everyone forgot about me he gave me back my life. I am very grateful and I owe a big thanks to him."

Man of the match Christian Eriksen added: "We try to be professional and just play football."

The win ended a poor run of form for Tottenham, while increasing Sunderland's relegation fears.

"As a team we are going through a difficult moment, but we just have to keep fighting for the club," Adebayor added. "Today we have done a very good job for the team, for the manager, for the fans."
