Wenger happy with Adebayor

Arsene Wenger has praised Emmanuel Adebayor after the Arsenal striker bagged two goals against Fulham this afternoon. The French boss praised Adebayor for the added dimension he adds from headers and his personality.

The Gunners boss said: "In the past, he has sometimes ended up going out to the flanks because he so wants to be involved in play - but that drags him away from where he can be lethal.

"We have been telling him that for a while and he was more focused on being central today which is good.

"He has an unbelievable jump, he times his jumps very well and he's terrific in those situations.

"I must confess I wasn't devastated when Togo didn't qualify.

"It would have been difficult without Adebayor although we do have players who are coming on very well like Eduardo, Bendtner and Walcott.

"He has personality and he is now focused on his achievements here. He is also the main striker now and he gives us an added dimension with his headers."
