Tottenham striker Clint Dempsey has explained the reason behind his number.

The tale of number two goes back to Clint's college days back in Dallas and with his first MLS club, New England Revolution.

"When I was in the MLS, my mum pulled out an old jersey and got it framed for me and that was the number - number two," he told the Spurs website. "It's a number that has significance for me and I'm happy to be wearing it."
