Christmas has come early in Hotspur magazine where Jermain Defoe tells us why he loves this time of year.

JD is pictured in a Santa hat and holding a festive gnome as he enthusiastically relates tales of his best Christmas experiences from the past and looks ahead with real excitement to December 25.

“Do I enjoy Christmas? Are you joking? I love it. I’m like a big kid!,” he laughs. “It is a special time of the year. And you need to spend it with the family – that’s what it is all about.

“I always go round to my Mum’s house with my sister and all the family turn up there. There’s always a houseful and it’s manic but great fun!

“There’s nothing better as far as I am concerned. Chilling out and watching all those old Christmas films on TV. I can’t wait! I know people moan about the same old films being shown but for me they are part of the whole occasion.”

Did he enjoy Christmas shopping? And does it have to snow?

“Yes, shopping is one of the best bits for me,” he says. “I was in Hamley’s toy shop the other day and went to every single floor. I loved it!

“Snow does make it even more magical; it feels so much more like Christmas. But I have mixed feelings as I also have to consider our festive games and you don’t want any called off because of the conditions.”

Read the full interview in the December yuletide issue of our popular official monthly magazine where we also look at seasonal games from the past and Scott Parker, Brad Friedel, Younes Kaboul, Michael Dawson, Tom Carroll and Jake Livermore join the festive fun by sharing their own Christmas memories and hopes for this year.
