Clint Dempsey is ready to have a homecoming of sorts this weekend as he returns to Gillette Stadium for Saturday's USA-Spain friendly. The U.S. national team star returns to the town where his professional career began after completing what is easily the best season of his professional career.
Just how good was his season at Fulham? He finished with a career-high 12 Premier League goals, helping him break the club record for career goals in the Premier League. His season was good enough to earn him Fulham Player of the Year, which he was named today.
I had a chance to sit down with Dempsey in London recently and discuss everything from life events to career moments. Here is my Fox Soccer feature on Dempsey, with the 28-year-old midfielder discussing everything from some close calls in his life, to his on-field persona, to his feelings about U.S. national team head coach Bob Bradley.
Give the story a read and feel free to share your own thoughts on it, and Dempsey, in the comments section below.
