Toronto FC's marquee striker Jermain Defoe was in the red chair to talk about his career and how he ended up playing in Toronto.

George also asked Defoe if having a world class player like David Beckham switch from playing in Europe to MLS's LA Galaxy paved the way for a player like himself.

"At the time I was shocked 'cause he came from [high profile team Real] Madrid. I was shocked at the time," said Defoe. "But speaking to David, he loved it there. He enjoyed his time there. Was really successful. And yeah, I suppose I thought about that when I made my decision."
