The striker of Tottenham Hotspur, Jermain Defoe, has hailed his teammate Aaron Lennon for performing brilliantly in the last match against Panathinaikos. That was a Europa League match and the Spurs won that match easily by 3-1. Defoe scored the third goal for his team in the 83rd minute of the match. That goal was set up by Aaron Lennon.
Talking to the reporters after the match, Defoe said, “Aaron was fantastic again. This was not the first time in the season that he set up my goal. He has set up quite a few of my goals this season. He has been in phenomenal form since the start of the season.”
Lennon has started each and every Premier League match for Tottenham in the ongoing season. When asked about his understanding with Lennon, Defoe said, “It’s fantastic to play alongside somebody like Aaron. We have very good understanding between us. He is a versatile player and he always creates opportunities.”
Defoe has already scored 13 goals in the ongoing season. When asked about his own form, Defoe said, “It’s great that I have been performing consistently. I put in a lot of hard work during the off season, worked on the weak aspects of my game and that seemed to be paying off.”
“It’s always good to contribute in team’s victory. When you score goals and the team wins, it gives you a lot of satisfaction. It has been a great season for me so far and hopefully, I would continue playing well in the second half of the season as well”
“We have played some cracking football in the last four matches and won them by big margins. It’s really satisfying. The environment in the camp is pretty good and positive.”
Tottenham Hotspur will play its next match against Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday.
