Transfer Advent Calendar 1st Dec: Robbie Keane

Transfer Advent Calendar 1st Dec: Robbie Keane

The transfer window opens in 31 days and Vital Coventry is bringing you a new rumour everyday until Christmas Eve concerning Sky Blues past and present or potential new signings.

1st December: Robbie Keane's £20m move from Tottenham to Liverpool in the summer meant that the Irishman has been bought and sold for a total of £58m in his career to date.

For that price howver, Anfield fans will have been expecting a bigger goal tally from the former Coventry City man and speculation is beginning as to how much longer he will last on Merseyside.

Legendary Reds striker Ian Rush told the Liverpool Echo: 'Robbie Keane is finding out the hard way just how different it is to play for Liverpool.

'Playing up front for a club like Liverpool is totally different to playing for Tottenham, and I don`t mean any disrespect when I say that. The pressure is completely different.

'At a club like Tottenham you can get away with playing well in three of every six games.

'At Liverpool you have to perform five in every six. That`s the kind of pressure Robbie Keane is discovering for the first time, and he has to learn to live with it.

'The number of chances he is missing is now starting to be commented upon and that will only add to the pressure he is feeling. Some players have been unable to live with those unique pressures.'

Keane netted 12 times in 31 Premiership games for the Sky Blues following his £6m move from Wolves in 1999.
