Tottenham striker Defoe understands Portsmouth fans' frustrations

New Tottenham signing Jermain Defoe accepts Portsmouth fans will be upset over his move last week.

He said: "I can totally understand (they are upset), if I was a fan I'd be the same.

"But it is part and parcel of being a footballer - players come and go.

"What people have got to realise is that sometimes in life an opportunity comes up and you think about the situation.

"You hope it is the right decision. It happens. I'm not the first and I certainly won't be the last."
