Tottenham striker Keane delighted with preseason form

Tottenham striker Robbie Keane admits he's delighted with his preseason form.

Despite the speculation surrounding Keane's future, Tottenham coach Joe Jordan said he had been the club's best player in pre-season.

Keane believes that is testimony to the way he has matured over the years, and the way he now looks after himself on and off the pitch, added to which has been the obvious honour of wearing the captain's armband for the Republic of Ireland.

"It's been a great experience, and obviously as you grow older you obtain more knowledge of the game," said Keane.

"I've played a lot of games now as captain, and I feel I've grown into the role. I really enjoy it.

"As for me, I feel great. Again as you get older you look after yourself even more, so I certainly feel really good.

"I'm looking forward to the new season as it's probably the best I've felt for a while."
