Robbie Keane has admitted that Niko Kranjcar has been more impressive than he expected.

The Croatian international has been in superb form for Tottenham since his £2million switch from Portsmouth.

Keane told the club’s official site: “He’s a wonderful player, a proper footballer,” he said.

“He’s great to play with, very clever and links the play well.

“He’s quite similar to Luka (Modric) in respect of how he plays, how he tucks inside from the wider areas. He’s been fantastic.

“I’d played against him a few times and watched him and always thought he was a good player but you only realise how good he is when you play with him. He’s even better than people expected.”

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I remember watching him a few seasons back when he first arrived at portsmouth and he looked average but the following season at the lane he was the best player on the pitch.Harry said after the game that he had taken a bit of time to settle in. I was well pleased when we signed him hes a team player and not big headed just what we need and its always nice to get someone on the cheap.
