'What a game' - Adebayor & Assou-Ekotto pose for picture after Tottenham drubbing

The Spurs outcasts looked suspiciously satisfied after Liverpool humiliated Andre Villas-Boas' men at White Hart Lane to leave the manager under severe pressure
Emmanuel Adebayor chose an interesting way to mark Tottenham's 5-0 humbling at the hands of Liverpool on Sunday - by posing for a smiling picture with fellow Spurs outcast Benoit Assou-Ekotto.

Adebayor has found himself exiled from Andre Villas-Boas' starting XI this season despite Spurs' ongoing struggles in front of goal, making just one substitute appearance against Manchester City last month.

Assou-Ekotto, meanwhile, was sent out on loan to QPR in the summer after being informed that he was surplus to requirements at White Hart Lane.

And neither man appeared too distraught by a result which leaves Tottenham languishing in seventh in the Premier League and Villas-Boas' future the subject of intense speculation.

Along with the picture he posted on Twitter, Assou-Ekotto wrote: "What a game tonight....happy to see my man @E_Adebayor (LOL)"

One suspects that 'laughing out loud' was not Villas-Boas' reaction when he was informed of the tweet.
