The Sunday Times says Defoe is happy passing on his skills.
Two cousins, Darnell (at Tottenham) and Anthony (at West Ham), are emerging players and his advice is "practise and practise, then you get the same situation in a game and find you're familiar with it. A lot is instinctive, to be honest. When I have a chance, I try and relax and I usually feel I'm going to score. If I score one goal, especially early in the game, the first thing I think is, 'I'm going to get a hat-trick today'."
