Tottenham Hotspur striker Emmanuel Adebayor has praised the positive impact that boss Harry Redknapp has had on his game.
Adebayor scored his fourth and fifth goals since signing on a season-long loan from Manchester City in Monday night's 2-0 win over Aston Villa, a victory which moved Tottenham up to third in the Barclays Premier League.
"For me it's always special to have a manager like him," Adebayor said.
"He has given me confidence, has given me my life back. He tells me before every game: 'Adebayor - go out there, you know what you can do, just enjoy your football.
"If you can score goals, score goals, make assists, keep doing your thing,' and that's it."
He added: "I don't have any pressure on my head telling myself I have to score to keep my place now. I just have to do the job and I think at the moment I am doing it very well."
