And Keane thinks he will continue adding to that tally.”I’m sure he’ll stay at this club for a long time. He loves it here. There’s no question that he cannot get to Jimmy Greaves’ record,” Keane, who banged in over 100 goals for Spurs, told Sky Sports.”What I like about Harry is that… everyone keeps talking about ‘ah, next year is he going to be good?’ He keeps doing it.”I’m sick of people saying ‘is he tired?’ because he keeps banging the goals in and that spurs him on.”When you speak to him he gets annoyed when people keep mentioning it and then he just keeps coming on the pitch and keeps scoring goals.”For me at this moment in time, he’s the best No. 9 in the world.” last_img read more
