Dimitar Berbatov believes Robbie Keane has rightly taken his place amongst the Club’s greats after hitting the 100-goal mark on Saturday.Keano’s late volley against Sunderland took him to three-figures in just 232 appearances since joining us in 2001. He’s only the second player in the last 20 years to hit the milestone since Glenn Hoddle ended his playing career at the Lane in 1987 - Teddy Sheringham the other player to make it.

“It’s a great achievement and I hope, like we say in Bulgaria, it will be the first hundred of many!”
Who better than Berba to explain Robbie’s qualities? “He never loses his confidence or his spirit,” he said. “It doesn’t matter that sometimes we haven’t played so well or things aren’t working, he’s always there and always trying to score the chances he has in the game and most of the time he succeeds. That’s why he has 100 goals.
“We had an immediate understanding and that’s not only good for us, it’s good for the whole team and that’s who we play for, the team.”
