Defoe claims “I didn’t want to play Champions League anyway”

September 10, 2010 Leave a comment

With the news that Tottenham and England frontman Jermain Defoe has been ruled out for 3 months, it now appears the diminutive striker will miss all 6 of Tottenham’s group matches in this seasons Champions League. Tottenham will now have to rely on part-time Stephen Merchant impersonator, part-time footballer and part-time tabloid headline maker Peter Crouch. Defoe will be severely missed by Spurs who have a tough group containing reigning champions Inter Milan, german side Werder Bremen and dutch champions FC Twente who were of course led to the elite of European competition by former manager and winner of the 2006 competition ‘So you think you can manage England?’, Steve McClaren.

Asked if he was disappointed to be missing out on his and Tottenham’s maiden campaign in the Champions League, a rather sulky and brash Defoe stated “I don’t care, who wants to play in Bremen? Nobody. I didn’t want to play in the Champions League anyway, I’m just getting into Prison Break for a start and I’d planned on watching the DVD’s on weeknight’s. This Champions League rubbish was gonna ruin everything but now I’m happy with how things have turned out” before sucking on his thumb and yelling at his yo-yo because the string kept becoming knotted. Defoe was then asked if he would be back in time for the knockout rounds should Spurs qualify to which he replied, “don’t think I need to worry about that”.

Meanwhile, Werder Bremen player Tim Borowski stated how much he was looking forward to the opening fixture with Tottenham on Tuesday September 14th. “I’m very much looking forward to meeting Darren Lamb off Extras”.
