Clint Dempsey left Fulham for Tottenham Hotspur in the summer because he felt undervalued and unappreciated, reports Sky
Dempsey has impressed since arriving at Tottenham, netting two goals in eight Premier League appearances, and has featured throughout Spurs’ Europa League campaign this season. The 29-year-old American, who enjoyed five years at Craven Cottage, was left out of the side’s pre-season tour to Switzerland and rumours of a move began to circulate the media. He moved to Spurs on deadline day in a deal worth £6m and attracted interest from Aston Villa and Liverpool as well with Spurs.
Dempsey’s new club, under the leadership of Andre Villas-Boas, travel to Fulham this weekend hoping to make it three wins out of three in the league, with Fulham without a win in their last five games. Dempsey is not the only ex-Fulham player returning to familiar territory, as Moussa Dembele made the same move to White Hart Lane in the summer and returned after injury against Liverpool.
Dempsey said, ”It’s unfortunate how things happened in the end but you look forward to going back and how you’re received. But no matter what, I’ll always look back with good memories and be grateful for the club and the fans for the way they took care off me.”
