Adebayor: Trophies will fill my empty heart

Arsenal striker Emmanuel Adebayor is determined to achieve Champions League glory this season, despite an indifferent Premier League campaign.

The Togo striker, who bagged a brace against Manchester City on his return from a hamstring injury on Saturday, reiterated his desire to win trophies with the Gunners.

Arsene Wenger's side face Villarreal in the quarter-finals on Tuesday, and Adebayor has sent a rallying cry out to his team-mates, encouraging them to help him satisfy his personal quest for glory after suffering heartbreak in the past.

“For the last three years I’ve gone on holiday having not won a trophy and with an empty heart.

“So now it is time to achieve things, starting with two games against Villarreal. We have to believe we can do it. It will be very difficult. We are expecting a hard game and a great atmosphere this week.

“I was so disappointed when we went out to Liverpool in last year’s quarter-finals. I could not bring myself to watch the semi-finals on TV.

“There is a feel-good factor back at the club and the fans are pleased to see us playing with fast movement and good football again.”
