Abanga is impressed by the exploits of the Niger international and admits he has not met a better attacker in his five years in the top flight than Adebayor.

"Frankly speaking I have never met a guy like him," Abanga told Joy Sports. "I have been in the Ghana Premier League for five years and I have never met a striker like him (Adebayor)." 

"He is super on the pitch and off the pitch. Talking about striking, he is a striker. Whether he shows it on the pitch or not in a match he delivers.

"He does his as Adebayor and we know on the field of play he always delivers. We have so much confidence in him and we know what he is capable of doing."
