Tottenham Hotspur playmaker Clint Dempsey has explained he has relished his pivotal role at the club this season, which was evident in their come-from-behind 2-1 win against Stoke City yesterday at the Britannia Stadium.
Tony Pulis’ charges looked set to pull off an amazing upset against Spurs when midfielder Steven N’Zonzi pounced on a Charlie Adam cross from a set-piece to give the Potters the lead. But Dempsey would have none of that as he scored the equaliser in the 20th minute and then set up Emmanuel Adebayor for the winning goal seven minutes from time.
Dempsey happily reflected on his assist with the club’s official site, saying, "It was just about staying calm, getting my head up and I saw Ade at the far post, trying to keep it hard and low and making sure the keeper couldn’t get a touch on it.
"It was a great finish, great composure", the United States international added.
Dempsey, who has been one of the club’s key players in momentous games in the campaign – including scoring the last-gasp equaliser against Manchester United at White Hart Lane – admits it’s a pleasure to earn his keep with the club.
“You always want to be a player that chips in with goals and assists. I’m glad I’ve scored some important goals this season and a few assists as well", the playmaker concluded.
