Keane spent nine years with Tottenham across two different spells. Initially signed in 2002 from Leeds United, the striker spent six years at the club, before joining Liverpool in 2008. However, he would return only six months later.

There were loan spells away at Celtic and West Ham United, before the Irishman left the club permanently in 2011 to join LA Galaxy.

Reliving some of his finest memories during his time at our club, Keane revealed that his favourite strike partner during his time in N17 was Dimitar Berbatov.

“He made the game look so easy, he made my game a lot easier.”

Berbatov and Keane enjoyed almost a telepathic understanding during the pair’s time together at Tottenham. The duo played 80 matches together at our club and produced a joint-goal participation of 16 goals during the spell.

The 39-year-old Keane also opened up on his legendary cartwheel celebration, claiming that he hated to look at it, that it makes him cringe.

Across his two spells at our club, Keane made 302 appearances, bagging 121 goals in the process.
