Tottenham manager Andre Villas-Boas has no doubts that Emmanuel Adebayor will be given a run of games and make his presence felt.

The Togo international has been missing in recent weeks because of a hamstring injury.

“He had an injury which took him out for six games and then another injury took him out for two games,” Villas-Boas said.

“From the 11 games that we’ve played, I think he’s been out for eight of them.

“You also had the beginning of the season when he wasn’t here.

“In the games when he was available he showed the quality striker that he is.

“We have no doubts whatsoever.

“We have him fit now and hopefully ready for the next upcoming games. We know his ability.”

There had been rumours that the Togo international didn’t want to travel to Maribor but the Portuguese boss insisted that there was an injury.

“No, we’re quite happy with his attitude,” he added. “We have the injury records for you if you want.”
