Keane: I lost my hunger at Tottenham

Robbie Keane is preparing to head back to Tottenham to fight for his place.

The Republic of Ireland international spent the second half of the season on loan at Celtic, where he claims he has rediscovered his hunger for the game.

“I just think I was maybe in a little bit of a rut at Liverpool and going back to Tottenham,” he said.

“I did well when I went back first and then did well at the start of the season, and then I just didn’t have that hunger that I had and I think I maybe needed to go away to get that back.

“I certainly got that back at Celtic. It certainly got me back on track and really enjoying my football again.

“For me, it is just about playing games. I have got that back now and it’s up to me now to go back to Tottenham and get myself in that team and stay in that team if I get that opportunity.

“As a player, you lose confidence sometimes and I lost confidence maybe a small bit.

“But it is important that you try to get that back as soon as possible, and maybe going to Celtic was the best thing that happened to me.”

“I am not one of these people who like to sit on the bench and pick up their money and be happy with that,” Keane added.

“As a kid, you don’t dream of playing bits and bobs of games, you want to play every game.

“As a player, that’s where you get your sharpness and your fitness.

“I don’t like to train every day of the week and then come Saturday, not play. I have always been like that.

“I am going back to Tottenham to start pre-season and to be at Tottenham unless Harry pulls me in or the chairman pulls me in and says otherwise.”

  1. Keane found it easy to work with Berbatov who supplied him with opportunities to score goals.Without berbatov,Keane does not have the talent to do it by himself.He was fine at Celtic,but the cmpetition of the premiership is no place for an egotistical player like Keane.There is no place for his arrogance and finger waving in a side that must work together as a team to get results at the highest levels.

  2. 50/50 about Keane. Purely for sentimental reasons,I hope he returns & show us at least 90% of the old Keane,otherwise,he just has to go in the first window. Then again,a world class striker is what we really need. Defoe/Crouch/Pav(leaving?)/Gud(leaving?)/Keane(?) are all good players,but………

  3. GO AWAY WEE LAD THE PREMIERSHIP IS FOR MEN , AND FOR HIM TO SAY HE LOST THE HUNGER HOW DARE HIM HE DID`NT LOSS THE HUNGER TO BANK HIS CASH AT THE VERY MOST HE SHOULD HAVE LOST MONEY FOR NOT TURNING UP AT WHL , IN SO MANY GAMES WE NEEDED SO BADLY TO WIN TO GET INTO THE TOP FOUR HE WAS AWOL , YOU TRAITOR AND MERCENARY GREASY SPOON UP THE MOTORWAY LIVERPOOL LOVER, ENOUGH OF THIS FINGER WAVING IF YOU WANT TO BE AN OFFICAL GO TO IT AND WE SEE THE SCHOOLBOY RUMBLE AND TUMBLE RETURNED AGAIN AT YOUR BOYHOOD TEAM .

  4. Yes he left for liverpool so what! He still had the balls to come back and help us out the sh*t we had got ourselves in. Keano has scored over 100 goals for our club so some spurs fans should show some respect. He has and still is a great player for spurs! I have sat in the park lane end on many occasions and thought thank god we have Keane! There will be other fans who have thought that. From the volleyed goals against fulham in the fa cup in our brown kit to the tears and celebrations in the carling cup win against chelsea. The boy even played for us the day after his father passed away Vs birmingham and scored a great goal. All I’m askin is for the supporters and harry to give him a chance,let him have pre season and let’s have our keano back firing on all clyinders and scoring goals again. Keano there’s only one keano! COYS

  5. jon i agree, if can we get our money back lets f..cck him off, i have never forgiven him, but if he had come back & done the business maybe but he didn't, time to let the scouser loving spurs player go.
