Goalscorer, Captain, Owner of one of the best goal celebrations in the modern era – Robbie Keane has found fame and affection wherever he has gone. His contribution to the game and his undoubted talent has led to his being inducted into the Irish Hall of Fame – and it could not have been any more deserved.
Amongst the tributes, one of the most endearing and entertaining has to be a video message from Keane’s former Spurs strike partner Dimitar Berbatov. The Bulgarian maverick said that the only partnership more fitting than Keane and the Hall of Fame was the duo’s own as they “made fun of defenders” in their time at White Hart Lane.
Berbatov’s message is straight from the heart as he thanks Keane for his tireless work ethic, his team-centric attitude and for even making him a better player. His sincere delight at his friend’s being honoured is a joy to behold in itself.
Well played, Berba!
