"There were some things that were said that weren't true. That's in the past now. It's about looking toward the future and like I said, I'm looking forward to playing with Tottenham. It's a great team, a great club. I want to thank the fans of Fulham. It's been 5½ great years. Some of my best memories in football have been there. I want to thank the chairman for taking a chance on me from MLS and I wish them well in the future."

He added that the transfer meant his family doesn't have to move far in London and his daughter can go to another international school with the same curriculum. He spoke from the U.S. national team training camp, where he is preparing for the two-game series with Jamaica. (AP)
