"I'm not going to turn round and say he's better than Jol," says Defoe. "But he's changed a lot of things. Since he's been here, everyone knows what they're doing. It shows in the way we attack, and defensively as well. We do a lot of set plays in training, attacking and defending. The whole organisation is different. He has done really well."
Spurs chairman Daniel Levy has said that Jol lost the dressing room, but Defoe's only comment is: "He did well for the club. Hopefully, the new manager will bring us on to the next level."
