Keller: Robinson forced me out of Spurs

Kasey Keller admits he was forced out of Tottenham after they signed Paul Robinson.

Keller, now with Fulham, faces his old club today and told The Sun: "When Santini was manager he played me in the cup games, then I went on loan to Southampton.

"But I had played every minute of every game for two seasons and then they told me I couldn't even compete with Paul Robinson. I just wish they'd have told me earlier so I could have left sooner.

"I went on loan to Southampton just as Jol took over, I was in the meeting when Santini stepped down, then when I came back, they told me I could go.

"It was a difficult personal situation for four or five months. Whether Robbo is the best man for England is not for me to say, I'm sure there are a few knocking on the door - if you make mistakes, you have to realise someone else may get a chance.

"I know if I had my time over again, I wouldn't be a keeper!"
