Tim Sherwood: MLS move won't harm Jermain Defoe's chances of going to the 2014 World Cup with England
Spurs manager Tim Sherwood thinks standards in the MLS have improved greatly in recent season, and that Jermain Defoe – who is leaving White Hart Lane for Toronto FC next month – will still be good enough to challenge for a place in England's World Cup squad this summer.
"I think we have to give a bit more credit to the MLS. I don't think it's a c**p league," Sherwood said, speaking straight down the line as usual.
"I think it's OK. Jermain needs to play regularly and he sees that as the place where he will get it.
"I am sure playing in the MLS won't hinder him from being in the England squad. Wherever he plays he will score goals."
