VIDEO: Former Tottenham and Fulham man slaps opponent in the groin

Clint Dempsey is a sore loser - but at least he isn't as sore as Mark Bloom was yesterday.

Yesterday saw Jermain Defoe make his debut for new side Toronto FC in Major League Soccer - and as expected he found it a walk in the park.

He bagged both of the Canadian sides goals in the tie against Seattle Sounders in a 2-1 win for Ryan Nelsen’s side.

Toronto appear to have overtaken the Sounders as the big spenders of MLS - and another player who switched Spurs for America was also in the news from the game.

Clint Dempsey scored the Sounders consolation - but the former Tottenham Hotspur and Fulham man made headlines for completely different reasons.

Being 2-0 down after 39 minutes must have gotten to the USMNT international - and he decided to take it out on the, ahem, groin of Toronto defender Mark Bloom.

Sometimes we can appreciate a cheeky niggle in football here and there but I think I can speak for men across the globe when I say OUCH!

Don’t do it again Clint, you definitely wouldn’t like it done to you!
