On This Day In Spurs History: 8th July
1980 – On this day in 1980, Robbie Keane was born. Keane joined Spurs for £7m in 2002 and became a hero at White Hart Lane, scoring 107 goals in 254 appearances.
Unfortunately Keane then tarnished his reputation with the Spurs faithful by joining his ‘boyhood’ club Liverpool, only to return with his tail between his legs several months later. Keane has thus far failed to recapture his old form during his second spell at Spurs and looks likely to depart once again during the summer, having spent part of last season on-loan to Celtic.
