There was confusion at White Hart Lane this afternoon, when Tottenham Hotspur entertained Portsmouth in the fixture that saw in-form striker Jermain Defoe playing for and against his former clubs.
Defoe emerged onto the pitch at the start of the game wearing half of the Spurs kit, and half of that of Portsmouth!
Defoe was playing his old club at his new home ground that is his old home ground, against his old club, for his new manager who is his old manager. Confused? You should be.
Defoe started his career at West Ham for manager Harry Redknapp, but was loaned-out to Bournemouth - Harry's old club - before he jumped ship to Tottenham when the going got tough at Upton Park. During the tenure of Martin Jol at Spurs, however, Defoe was out of favour, and was signed by Redknapp, now at Portsmouth.
Then Harry was poached by Spurs, and he brought Defoe back to White Hart Lane, his former club, and he faces his other former club for his former club, which is now his current club today.
Sort that lot out.
He was bound to score.
