After several years, the former Toronto FC player revealed how he got to play for the MLS team. Defoe had an excellent football career and his time at Toronto FC surprised everyone. Although he only played two seasons, the English forward is highly remembered at Toronto FC. It was a great arrival that revolutionized the team.

In a chat with former Chelsea goalkeeper Petr Cech, the current Scottish Premiership Rangers forward commented on how his arrival at Toronto FC happened. He was not convinced by any former teammate or by any soccer player as the one who called him to play for Toronto FC was none other than Drake.

Defoe told Cech that one day he was at his house and a private number rings and it was Drake himself. I called him to say that I wanted him to play for Toronto FC and that he would not regret doing it. Drake promised him that if he signed with Toronto FC he would have the possibility to go out to eat with the singer and go to all the parties he attended. He was convenced.

The funniest thing about Defoe's story is that when he arrived at Toronto FC he never saw Drake in person. They had simply used the hook singer to get Defoe to Canada. The forward who played in the best teams in the world took the situation with great humor and does not regret his decision.
