Dempsey reveals reasons for Fulham exit

Published 1 Comments

Tottenham forward Clint Dempsey admits he only left Fulham because he did not feel appreciated at the club.

Dempsey will return to Craven Cottage on Saturday for the first time since he left the west London club in a £6million move across the capital this summer. Martin Jol left Dempsey out of Fulham's squad for their pre-season training camp in Switzerland after Liverpool had made an enquiry for the player, and the Cottagers boss then decided the Texan was not in the right frame of mind to play for the club once the season started.

Dempsey said: "If you always felt valued and appreciated enough, I don't think you'd ever leave, but it came to a point for me where I didn't feel valued and appreciated, not by the fans, but by other situations. That's just the way things went."
