Tottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor feels like Harry Redknapp has given him his life back following his loan switch to north London.

Adebayor scored his fourth and fifth goals since signing on a season-long loan from Manchester City as Tottenham moved up to third in the Barclays Premier League with a comfortable 2-0 win over Aston Villa on Monday night.

"For me it's always special to have a manager like him," Adebayor said. "He has given me confidence, has given me my life back. He tells me before every game: 'Adebayor - go out there, you know what you can do, just enjoy your football. If you can score goals, score goals, make assists, keep doing your thing,' and that's it."
