Tottenham's Keane: Berbatov just like Cantona

Tottenham ace Robbie Keane has likened strike-partner Dimitar Berbatov to Manchester United legend Eric Cantona.

He said: "It is every kid's dream to play at Wembley.

"When I was living in Ireland I would watch the TV and dream of playing there.

"The cup final when Cantona scored is the one that stands out.

"Berba has Cantona's style. To be mentioning him in the same bracket as Cantona is something special as he was one of the best.

"But Berba certainly has that style. If you have Berba in your team you have a chance.

"We compliment each other in the way we play. We read each other quite well. It's the best partnership I've had - definitely.

"He can come short, go long, holds the ball up. His assists are also unbelievable."

Jermaine Jenas, another Spurs player who has been outstanding of late, reckons the strike combo are the best in the Premier League.

The England midfielder said: "As soon as they step on the pitch together there is some chemistry. I've seen them pass without even looking. Yes, they are definitely the best partnership.

"You need that up front - two top players both at a great age and a great stage of their careers. So it is fantastic for Tottenham."
