Emmanuel Adebayor has not won a major trophy as a professional footballer. The Arsenal striker has only runners-up medals in the Carling Cup and the Champions League but is aiming to put that right in 2008-09.

Adebayor committed his future to Arsenal last week and celebrated signing a new contract in a candid interview with Arsenal TV Online.

He spoke about:

  • the need for success this term
  • why last season was the best of his career
  • his best goal of last season
  • taking the striking mantle from Thierry Henry  
  • the lessons learned by the team
  • the injuries and bad luck they suffered
  • the surprise signing of Mikael Silvestre
  • signing his new contract
  • the final word on what happened in the summer
