Togolese striker returns to Spurs After being granted indefinite compassionate leave by the club, Emmanuel Adebayor has returned to training at Tottenham Hotspur. Adebayor has only missed two games as a result of this leave, but he hasn't played for Spurs since the start of November and missed at least the last week of training.
