Defoe glad he didn’t have groin operation


Jermain Defoe

Jermain Defoe admitted that he is glad that he did not undergo a groin operation after bagging a hat-trick for England.

The 27-year-old was expected to go under the knife after Tottenham’s Champions League win against Young Boys but decided against it.

Defoe said of his operation: “I’m glad I didn’t have it now!

“It’s been a little bit sore to be honest, but I’ve done a lot of work in the gym – a lot of core work – to try to improve it and I didn’t get a reaction.”

He limped off after completing his hat-trick against Bulgaria but insisted that it was due to a slight knock on his ankle.

“It’s fine. Just a precaution,” he added.
