Watford Fans React to Rumours They Could Sign Emmanuel Adebayor

Watford Fans React to Rumours They Could Sign Emmanuel Adebayor

Emmanuel Adebayor could be on his way to Watford, if this article from the Daily Mail is to be believed.

Quique Sanchez Flores has made a strong start to life at Vicarage Road, leading the team to four wins and 11th place in the English Premier League since taking over in the summer.

The former Valencia and Atletico Madrid manager has the Hornets playing exciting football centred around his two main strikers Troy Deeney and Odion Ighalo.

But he’s limited in what they have in reserve up-front – and it’s believe he sees Adebayor as the man to support Deeney and Ighalo as they go about staying up this season.

The Togo striker has 96 Premier League goals to his name and previous spells at Arsenal, Manchester City and Tottenham prove his experience playing at the top level.

But the way we left Spurs in September, four months after playing his last game for the club – points to a difficult player who appeared happy to sit in the stands picking up his wages and get a pay-off before leaving and finding a regular playing spot elsewhere.

So you can understand why some Watford fans aren’t happy with the thought of Adebayor becoming a Hornet.

Here, we’ve rounded up some of the reactions on Twitter:
