The striker scored twice against Dnipro on Thursday night as Spurs set up a Europa League last-16 clash with Benfica, and he has praised his manager for giving him an opportunityTottenham striker Emmanuel Adebayor has thanked manager Tim Sherwood for "giving me a stage to play on".
The Togo striker has scored 11 goals in 15 outings, including two a 3-1 win over Dnipro in the Europa League last-32 Thursday, goals which helped send the Londoners through 3-2 on aggregate.
"I'm playing well for my team and I'm happy for my team," he told ITV. "I just have to keep playing well. I have to say big thank you for Tim for giving me a stage to play on. We just have to keep focused."
Spurs went 1-0 down on the night, meaning they needed three goals in 42 minutes to progress to the next round.
Christian Eriksen pulled one back and Adebayor struck a brace to set up a last-16 tie with Benfica, and the former Arsenal and Manchester City man was never afraid the match was beyond them.
"No, not at all," he added. "I know we have quality up front and on the bench. We knew it would be very difficult because they have an advantage after leading 1-0.
"We just kept our focus very well. When Eriksen scored that goal it put us on the way. We went through so we're very happy."
