After an interview with ESPN FC where he stated that he enjoyed his time with Major League Soccer, current Bournemouth player Jermain Defoe requested an early release from said comment as he stated, "I didn't actually enjoy my time at all."
Defoe, who signed a four year contract with Toronto FC and then left after one year, admitted that he didn't know what he was saying and meant specifically that he enjoyed his time with the money they paid him.
"Yeah, the money... that's what I enjoyed. 8 hour flights in business class and playing in 105 degree heat in Dallas... um ... no... I did not enjoy that."
Defoe also indicated that his fall out with Toronto happened due to them expecting him to play his full contract and him really not wanting to do that at all.
"Yeah, I wanted the money they gave me but not to actually play," stated Dfeoe. "Did you know they expected me to play the full four years? Madness. I mean, four years is an eternity in this league. Do you know how many flights that is from Toronto to Houston? Too many."
The Nutmeg News will have more on this as Defoe also walks back his comment on possibly returning to MLS as he states, "not for all the money in the ... you know... I do like money, though and it WAS pretty easy to get out of a contract the last time."
