LONDON (AP) — Tottenham midfielder Clint Dempsey has increased the tension ahead of the Premier League game against Fulham by saying that his former club didn't give him the recognition he deserved.

On Saturday, Tottenham and Dempsey make the short journey across London to Fulham, the club where he scored 50 goals in 184 league matches from 2007-12.

Despite a number of players swapping between Tottenham and Fulham, Dempsey's comments — and the way in which he left the club — are likely to ensure he is the one most targeted by the home fans.

Dempsey says "it came to a point where I didn't feel valued and appreciated."
