Spurs Balls: Sherwood Gives Jermain Defoe The Gilded Elbow

by | 13th, January 2014

TOTTENHAM Hotspur have just sold Jermain Defoe to Toronto FC. This is no way means that Defoe has lost his edge and is on a “negative spiral”. It means he is a fantasyic player. Well, so says Tim Sherwood:

“…I can’t give him enough praise. Even when told he is not playing, he is always ready to come on and show he is good enough to start. He’s been a fantastic professional. I think we’ve got to give a little more credit to the MLS, I don’t think it’s a c**p league. Jermain needs to play regular football and that’s where he is going to get it… I’m sure that won’t hinder him getting in the England team because wherever he plays, Jermain will score. His legacy is all about scoring goals – even as a boy, I can remember him going on loan to Bournemouth and he was knocking them in for fun, and he has never lost that sharpness.”

Defoe will score where he plays. He knocks them in for fun. He is as sharp now as he was in 2000-2001. Which is why he’s, erm, leaving mid-season…
