He snubbed offers from Newcastle TWICE, and now the Tottenham star believes that his side were better than the Magpies on Saturday. Well he would ... wouldn't he!
Jermain Defoe: “I thought we were unlucky and that we were the better team.
“We were patient, organised and didn’t give them anything through the middle.
"They didn’t have any clear-cut chances, that’s why I think we did well and were unlucky to lose.
“When I scored the equaliser, I thought we’d go on and nick it and if we won a point, so be it.
"It’s such a tough place to play. When they won the penalty it was tough to take.”
For those he didn't know already - NEWCASTLE WON 2-1.
