In form Tottenham striker has been a revolution under new manager Tim Sherwood.

Emmanuel Adebayor was dropped to train with the reserves under ex-manager of Tottenham Hotspur after producing, what Andre Villas-Boas perceived to be, unsatisfactory performances.

The forward made 34 appearances last season, only netting eight goals and was put further out of favour when the north London club signed Roberto Soldado for a club transfer record fee.

And now the Togo forward has revealed that he came under heavy criticism during the days when he wasn't struggling to make the squad.

"I was right at the bottom of the hole," Adebayor said.

"Even people in my own country, people from my own family, criticized me. It can't get worse than that."

Now those he's began a new lease of life since Sherwood's appointment at the club and was full of praise for the new manager and his positive relationship.

Now with five Premier League goals this season, after scoring two against Swansea at the weekend since coming back into the squad, Tottenham have been resurgent. In fact, they have yet to lose a league game under their new boss.

Adebayor's brace against Swansea also helped him to surpass Dennis Bergkamp in the all-time Premier League goal scoring charts.
