Defoe Gets His League Cup Medal 10 Years After Spurs Win
Former Tottenham striker Jermain Defoe appeared in five ties for Spurs but then moved to Portsmouth one month before they beat Chelsea in the 2008 League Cup final.
Sadly, he never got a medal for his contribution. This made the EFL present Defoe, 36, with a medal, 10 years after.
"It's a nice feeling to have been a part of the history of that club," Defoe, now at Bournemouth, said.
He added: "I remember contributing to help the boys get to that stage and after that it was actually nice to sit back and watch the lads go on to lift the trophy.
"At the end of the day, they're all your friends and you still want them to win, to get your medal!"
The 2008 League Cup is Spurs' most recent silverware. They face Chelsea in a two-legged Carabao Cup semi-final in January.VIDEO: Nigerian Men Share Their Opinion On Oral Sex
