Adebayor urged to work hard

07 May 2008 08:49
Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor has been challenged by manager Arsene Wenger to repeat his goalscoring efforts of this season in years to come. The 24-year-old Togo international has netted 30 goals in all competitions for the Gunners this term and Wenger wants his player to carry on the good work in the future. He commented: "Emmanuel took his tally to 30 for the season with a hat-trick at Derby, but there is some room for him to improve and that makes me very positive. "I believe he has to keep a good working attitude. We have seen players before, when they start getting the recognition, they ease off in their team work and very quickly they die. "I believe if Ade keeps his work ethic, there is still 20 per cent more to come from him. Does he want it enough - to get this extra 20 per cent out? Well that is where his future lies. If you lose that desire, you quickly become a nobody. "He was never prolific at Monaco, but he has worked hard for it at Arsenal and it highlights that our offensive game favours the strikers. "You will never starve as a striker at Arsenal, you get the quality balls to work with. Ade will be the first to agree with that."
