Hugo Lloris talks up Emmanuel Adebayor

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris talks up teammate Emmanuel Adebayor.

Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has hailed the return of Emmanuel Adebayor.

The Togo striker has been in fine form since he was brought in from the cold by Tim Sherwood following his appointment as manager last month.

Adebayor has netted five goals in six Premier League appearances since Sherwood took over just before Christmas, and France international Lloris has praised his teammate.

He told the club's official website: "He's a top player and a decisive player.

"Take away the fact that he scored the goals, he worked a lot of the team. He made a lot of runs and created a lot of space around him.

"Sometimes when you are struggling in a game he's a good target, he can keep the ball and help the team to play higher up the pitch."

Spurs are currently fifth in the Premier League.
