Defoe admits Tottenham frustration

18th May 2011 - Chad Lazarus

Jermain Defoe has confessed his frustration at being left out of football games for Tottenham Hotspur.

The England striker has found it challenging to retain a place in the first team this season, which has led to him only weighing in with four goals in this campaign.

Speaking to Sky Sports News, he said: "When you feel like you are working hard, training hard and being professional and then you are not playing, it is difficult."

Defoe added that if he is not playing football then he is not happy.

However, Defoe outlined his love of the club and maintained that he still gets the "same buzz" as he did when he first signed for them.

Tottenham beat Liverpool 2-0 last Sunday (May 15th) to jump into fifth position in the league.

Rafael Van Der Vaart opened the scoring with a dipping volley, before Luka Modric sealed the win with a second-half penalty.
