Robbie Keane has praised Tottenham boss Harry Redknapp’s management style.
Keane scored four goals in Tottenham’s 5-0 win against Burnley at the weekend and believes that working under an English manager is easier than working under a foreigner.
“Things are looking good,” Keane said. “On the international front we’ll see the outcome of that in a couple of weeks. Domestically we’ve been fantastic.”
“The manager’s been fantastic to all of us,” Keane said. “He speaks perfect English which helps. I’m not talking about anyone before but he gets his point across and you know exactly what he means.
“The players respond to that. As a football man he knows the way he wants to play and it suits us because we like to get the ball down and pass and counter attack. He has been brilliant so far for Tottenham.”
“It takes a while for people to come in and get their ideas across,” Keane said. “Sometimes it is difficult to get it across the way they really want to.
“With Harry you know exactly what he’s saying and what he wants you to do. The lads seem to be responding.”
“He keeps players confident,” Keane said. “The reality is it’s a long season and you’re not going to play every game. With the players we have here there are times you are going to be left out.
“If we want to progress and do well as a team and push into that top four we have to have other lads playing ahead of you.”
