Inter Allies technical director, Henrick Peters in an interview with Joy Sports said journalists are making a lot of hype about Nigerien international, Victorien Adebayor. Peters praised the tormenting left foot of Adebayor and also said the player is very deadly on one-on-one situations. He also predicted a great future ahead of the 23-year-old winger.
“He is very good on one-against-one, thus dribbling, his left foot is very good,” the Dane told Joy Sports.
“But is also important to say you are making a lot of hype about Adebayor, he still has a lot to learn, he is a good player, he scores a lot of goals, he can go very far but he has a lot to learn”, he added.
In the interview Joy Sports also spoke with team mates of Adebayor, they were also full of praise for the goal poacher who is in his second stint with Inter Allies after making moves to Denmark and returning to the Ghana Premier League club in 2017/18 season.
One of such players spoken to was defender, Paul Abanga, who said Adebayor does not necessarily need to perform in training before he delivers on match days. The defender also talked about the confidence of the team in their talismanic forward and how reliant he is on match days.
“Frankly speaking I have never met a guy like him. I have been in the Ghana Premier League for five years and I have never met a striker like him (Adebayor),” Abanga added.
“He is super on the pitch and off the pitch.
“Talking about striking, he is a striker. Whether he shows it in training or not in a match he delivers.
“He does his as Adebayor and we know on the field of play he always delivers. We have so much confidence in him and we know what he is capable of doing”, he concluded.
Victorien Adebayor has a towering influence in his team this season so much that, it’s always him when they’re to grind results in match days.
He’s scored 8goals this term and assisted thrice, bagging four NASCO man of the match awards in the process.
