Emmanuel Adebayor has praised the contribution of Sandro and Scott Parker this season, and believes the pair are willing to ‘go to war’ in order to secure Champions League football.
Parker has garnered acclaim for his performances at the heart of Tottenham’s midfield this season, while in his absence Sandro has stepped seamlessly into Harry Redknapp’s team of late to help Spurs continue their pursuit of Champions League football.
Sandro was on hand to win the penalty that allowed Tottenham to grab a point against Aston Villa on Sunday despite going down to ten men after Danny Rose was sent off, and Adebayor believes both the Brazilian and Parker are vital to Tottenham’s chances of success.
“You can definitely take Sandro and Scott Parker to war, because they can take a bullet for you no matter what happens,” he told Spurs TV Online.
“I think Sandro showed it again at Villa. The manager has given him a lot of confidence. We all believe in him because we all know what he can do.
“We see him in training every day and he proved it again because with one man down he can still do the job for us.
“Hopefully, we can keep going. And if all the lads are like that next year we can start thinking of winning the league and being in a better position.”
Spurs now sit a point behind Arsenal in fourth place going into the final game of the season, with victory against Fulham at White Hart Lane on Sunday enough to secure them at least fourth place.
The Gunners go into their final game of the season against West Brom at the Hawthorns hoping to end a run of four games without a win, knowing that defeat could see them slip out of the top four with just two points separating them from fifth placed Newcastle.
