Striker Emmanuel Adebayor has accused Tottenham of disrespecting him.
He scored twice on his first Premier League start of the season as Spurs beat Southampton 3-2 on Sunday.
But the 29-year-old forward was not included on the club’s official photograph and trained on his own while Andre Villas-Boas was manager.
“It was difficult,” said Adebayor. “When I come to train and see the team picture, which I’m not involved in, that shows me a lot of disrespect.”
Adebayor spent a season on loan at Tottenham from Manchester City in 2011-12 and scored 17 goals in 33 Premier League matches, before joining Spurs in a permanent deal for £5m in August 2012.
However, he only found the net nine times in 36 appearances in all competitions in 2012-13 and had only played 45 minutes of first-team football under Villas-Boas this season.
“I’m a professional footballer, I had to keep my head up and I did what they asked me to do,” said the Togo player.
“They asked me to train with the reserves, which I did with pleasure, and they asked me to train on my own, which I did with pleasure.”
