Zitat des Tages von Jermain Defoe:
I'm a forward, but I can't be the only forward at a club. Over the years, the clubs who've won titles have had several strikers.
People know what they're getting with me. It's part and parcel of football that people want to see new faces, but all I can do is play games, score goals and prove I can do it. My record is there for everyone to see.
If you have an argument with someone and you sulk, sometimes you don't want to speak to them. But it is important to keep your friends close to you and do the right things.
You want to play in the best stadiums against the best players - your Real Madrid's and Barcelona's - you want to play those teams.
I've got a Ferrari 430. It's black. I don't know what it cost but it wasn't cheap. I bought it because I was being a boy. It's fast and looks good.
I am doing my job and trying to win a game for my team. I shouldn't be getting racially abused; it's silly.
For me, there's nothing that beats playing. When I'm not playing, I'll watch games on the television, watch stuff on You Tube, everything. I just live for football, love watching great players.
There is always going to be competition. When you play for a top club, you're going to attract top players. It's part and parcel of football.
Going to a major tournament, having that buzz - it's hard to put into words. It's a dream to go there, and to play. It's the biggest thing you can achieve in your career, and to go again would be a dream.
It was easy to get wrapped up in some of the negative stuff, but obviously I chose not to. I didn't want to get in trouble and end up in prison where I can't play football. It was as simple as that.
I scored in a World Cup and I want that buzz again.
It doesn't matter who you are, football's a business. At some stage you're going to have to leave a football club; that's just normal.
I knew I could play really well in one game, score the winning goal and then, come the next game, I wouldn't play at all or I might come off the bench for the last five minutes. So I was frustrated towards the end of my time at Spurs. I wasn't happy.
If I ever score against Spurs, I won't celebrate. Even if it's the best goal in the world, I'll keep it subdued. It's a respect thing. The fans were brilliant towards me; I'll be playing against my friends and I can't forget that.
