Sherwood Hails Defoe

Tottenham Hotspurs manager Tim Sherwood has heaped praise on Toronto FC bound striker Jermaine Defoe.

The England international came off the bench to score Spurs second in their 2-0 win over London Rivals Crystal Palace to move them up to fifth place on the Premier League table.

Sherwood was delighted with the goal-poachers performance and admitted that Defoe would be comfortable scoring goals wherever he plays and also likened the striker to an Olympic athlete.

 "Jermain will score wherever he plays, in any league in the world," Sherwood said.

"He is a goalscorer, he loves scoring goals and if he doesn't score he gets the hump. He will go home happy tonight.”

 "He warmed up like an Olympic athlete. I saw the appetite he was showing to come on and when he came on he showed his worth," the London side’s manager added.
