Former Real Madrid Striker Fernando Morientes Backs Emmanuel Adebayor Signing

Adebayor can only benefit Real Madrid according to former los Blancos hitman Fernando Morientes.
Former Real Madrid and Liverpool striker Fernando Morientes has indicated that he believes the loan deal to bring in Manchester City forward Emmanuel Adebayor will be a boost for the club in their bid to overcome Barcelona at La Liga's summit.

"I played with him at Monaco. Emmanuel has always had a great desire to learn and work. He is very tall and good with the ball at his feet. However, in training his flaws will be there for all to see, as he is not as good in the air as he could be.

"I think the move is up there alongside the likes of [Angel] Di Maria and [Mesut] Oezil. Adebayor has many advantages to bring to Real Madrid," Morientes told AS.

With Gonzalo Higuain out injured for a lenghty spell, Adebayor will provide competition for Karim Benzema, who has just started to find goals for Madrid in the last two matches.
