Adebayor will have to Google new club Palace

The former Real Madrid and Tottenham striker joined the Eagles on Wednesday but has now admitted that he will have to use the internet to learn more about the club
New Crystal Palace signing Emmanuel Adebayor admits that he will have to look the club up on Google after putting pen to paper on Wednesday.

The Togo forward was unveiled by Palace on Wednesday, having signed a deal with Alan Pardew's team for the rest of the season.

But the former Arsenal and Real Madrid striker, who left Tottenham in September, concedes that he does not know a lot about his new club telling reporters: "I don't know much about the club but it's better to learn so I'll be going on Google and finding out more about them.

"Whatever the team want to achieve I will follow them - I want to help them win games and that's what I'm here for."

However, despite his lack of knowledge, Adebayor says he hopes to bring an element of cheeriness to the Palace dressing room as the club look to push on from their current position of 11th in the table.

"They're not far from the top five and that'll be difficult to reach as there are a lot of big games to play, but let's get out there, have fun and enjoy ourselves," he said.

His first appearance may come in the FA Cup, with Palace set to welcome Stoke City on Saturday.
