Steffen Freund admits Emmanuel Adebayor is unhappy, but the Tottenham assistant manager believes the striker still has a key part to play for the club this season.

Adebayor was a big hit on loan from Manchester City last season, but after signing a permanent deal at White Hart Lane in the summer he has failed to break back in to the starting XI this term thanks to the sharp form of Jermain Defoe.

But assistant head coach Freund insists the powerful hitman still has a big role to play for the team this year, and said: "Adebayor is sick. We will have a look (to see if he is fit for Norwich). If you're not playing and you're injured then of course you are not happy. He's really sick but hopefully he will be back in time. He is one of the best strikers in the Premier League."
