Robbie: Football helps

Posted on 10 April 2003  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Robbie Keane agrees with the manager in that playing football does provide a release during a period of grief.

Glenn suggested after the victory over Birmingham that being out on the pitch will help the striker cope in dealing with the sad loss of his father two week's ago.

Robbie, scorer of our first goal against the Blues agrees with the sentiment and says the club have been 'very supportive' towards him.

"Yes, it certainly does," said Robbie at Spurs Lodge. "It takes my mind off it a little bit but, obviously, it happened recently and I'm not completely over it.

"It's been hard for the family since I've been back and the club have been very supportive and said that if I need to go home at all it is not a problem.

"It's been a hard few weeks and even playing the games you think about a few things. You try to blank it out of your mind as much as you can but you can't. I don't think I ever will, to be honest.

"It is good to get out there and take a little bit off my mind. It is better to be out there than moping around in the house."
