Trapattoni told Keane to stay at Spurs

0

Giovanni Trapattoni hopes Robbie Keane’s lack of football works in his country’s favour.

The striker has made just two substitute appearances for Spurs this season and had been linked with a transfer deadline day move to Turkish side Besiktas.

The Italian said: “Robbie is mature. I have spoken to him about whether he should stay with his club, and I said to him, ‘Sure, your club need you’.

“He is balanced in his mind about football because he knows from many years in England, he knows the situation.

“But I am selfish and at the moment. For Ireland team, it is better he has played a few games.

“He is proud and I’m sure he can play like the Robbie Keane we know.”
