Jermain Defoe: Addicted to Goals & Other Socio Exclusives

ON Friday, I introduced you to Jermain Defoe during an emotional Big Interview, in which the Bournemouth striker talks about providence and his conviction that he was destined to score goals in the Premier League.

He has managed that at West Ham United, Portsmouth, Sunderland, Bournemouth and Tottenham Hotspur, where Jermain is remembered so fondly by supporters that they still sing his name. Even when Jermain is playing against them.

In this extract, he talks about why he had – and continues to have – such a strong connection with Spurs supporters and the contentment he felt during his time at White Hart Lane. And, of course, Jermain recalls the day he scored five goals for Spurs during a rout of Wigan in 2009.

But this is only a little piece of the full, 50-minute podcast. The full interview is available to Socios (there are over 650 of them now, and you can join the party by clicking here) and is just one of the podcasts we have been producing for them.
