The Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern always like to keep up with former players.
Indeed, our local Lillywhites feel a strong connection to those who have served the club well over the years, which is why Robbie Keane retains such a level of support amongst our north London locals.
The Republic of Ireland international scored 91 Premier League goals for Spurs across two spells and recently entered a new chapter of his storied career by moving over to India to play for Super League side ATK, after a hugely successful spell with La Galaxy.
Recently, he’s been speaking to Graham Hunter in The Big Interview (posted on JOE.co.uk) about all things football and the journalist hinted as to what he thinks the future holds for one of the Premier League’s most prolific ever marksmen.
He believes the 37-year-old will one day coach both the Irish national side and the Galaxy, who he won 3 MLS Cups with after leaving these shores in 2011, other than a brief return with Aston Villa during the winter break over in America.
”In other words, the transition from Robbie Keane record goalscorer and relentless competitor to Robbie Keane coach and manager is well underway. [My bet is that in due course he’ll manage both at Galaxy and the Ireland team]”, he writes.
Why not? Keane has played all over the world during his glittering career and his interview with Hunter would suggest he has already tried his hand in helping younger players develop.
A staple of the Premier League’s middle era, seeing Keane on the touchline would certainly be an interesting sight.
