Adebayor out for Cup revenge

Tottenham’s Emmanuel Adebayor will be out to avenge his 2009 Wembley loss when Spurs take on Chelsea in Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final.

Adebayor was a part of the Arsenal team that was beaten by Chelsea in the semi-final three years ago, his only Wembley appearance to date.

The Togolese striker is relishing the prospect of banishing those memories and creating new history with his Tottenham team-mates.

“My only appearance at Wembley so far was that 2-1 loss so my memories are not good,” Adebayor said.

“But this is a new game and we want to win. Football is all about winning medals and they are the moments in life that you can look back on with pride.

“Tottenham haven’t won a trophy since 2008 and so it would be great to win silverware again. We are two wins away from achieving that.”

Despite spending five years in England including spells with Arsenal and Manchester City, the 28-year-old is still without a winners’ medal in English football, his only honour coming in the Copa del Rey during his loan spell at Real Madrid.

“I didn’t win anything with Arsenal, I didn’t win anything with Manchester City, so I want to win the FA Cup with Tottenham. To do that would be special, a dream for me,” he said.

“I want to win the FA Cup so I can show my medal to my kids and say ‘look what daddy won!’.”
