Arsene Wenger urges Arsenal fans not to boo Emmanuel Adebayor this weekend.

Arsene Wenger has urged Arsenal fans not to boo Emmanuel Adebayor when the Gunners travel to White Hart Lane this weekend.

The 27-year-old will participate in his first North London derby as a Tottenham player on Sunday after leaving the Emirates for Manchester City in 2009.

The Togo international has had a tumultuous relationship with the Arsenal faithful ever since his final season with the club, but Wenger has told fans to "forget" about it.

"A football game is a fantastic day that everyone has to enjoy and with a positive atmosphere it is even more fantastic," he said.

"So to our fans, let's get behind our team and forget about the rest.

"Adebayor is a great player. I really don't know what went wrong. Of course I rate him. He can be a threat on Sunday."

Adebayor has enjoyed a successful return to life in the capital, scoring three goals in three league appearances so far.
