Crumlin Utd chairman delighted to see Keane make Liverpool move

Crumlin United chairman Sean Wall is delighted to see former protege Robbie Keane seal a move to boyhood idols Liverpool.

"I remember the first time I set eyes on Robbie Keane and I can tell you I was very impressed," he told

"He had this lightning pace that was a complete nightmare for defenders and I thought 'we've got something special here'.

"My only concern was that he didn't have the build. That was the only thing I could see stopping him from going on to have a career in the game. He lacked a bit of height back then but apart from that he had everything.

"He's gone on to enjoy a magnificent career in the game and I think the best part is still to come at Liverpool - his spiritual home."
