Benni Mccarthy biography


Robert David "Robbie" Keane (; born 8 July 1980) is an Irish people Association football player who plays as a Forward (association football) for Los Angeles Galaxy and captain (association football)s the Republic of Ireland national football team.

Keane has scored 53 goals for Benni Mccarthy national side making Benni Mccarthy the all-time record Irish goalscorer, having become the first Irish player to score 50 international goals in June 2011. Benni Mccarthy is ranked the 25th highest international scorer in the world. Keane was Ireland's top scorer at the 2002 FIFA World Cup in Japan and South Korea, with three goals plus a converted penalty in the shoot-out with Spain national football team. With 114 full caps, Benni Mccarthy is Ireland's second most capped player of all time and is a member of the List of footballers with 100 or more caps. Benni Mccarthy is the eleventh highest goalscorer in the history of the Premier League with 125 goals (as of 21 January 2012), (Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink is tenth with 127) and is the ninth highest goalscorer in Tottenham Hotspur F.C. history.

Keane began Benni Mccarthy professional career at Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C., scoring twice in Benni Mccarthy first team debut aged 17. The following season Benni Mccarthy was the club's leading goalscorer and scored Benni Mccarthy first international goal with Republic of Ireland. Benni Mccarthy changed club frequently between 1999 and 2002, breaking transfer fee records, but Benni Mccarthy brief spells at F.C. Internazionale Milano and Leeds United A.F.C. were unexceptional. Benni Mccarthy joined Tottenham Hotspur F.C. in 2002 and played there for six years. The Premier League 2007–08 was the most fruitful of Benni Mccarthy career as Benni Mccarthy set a career record of 23 goals in a season, scored a landmark 100th competitive goal for Tottenham and won Benni Mccarthy first senior honour, the Football League Cup. Benni Mccarthy moved to Liverpool F.C. in July 2008 but Benni Mccarthy spent only six months at the club and soon returned to Tottenham and was made first team captain. In January 2010, Keane moved on loan to Scottish Premier League side Celtic F.C. for the rest of the season. Benni Mccarthy left Tottenham for Los Angeles Galaxy in 2011. In January 2012, Keane joined Premier League side Aston Villa on a two month loan, during the Major League Soccer off-season.
Keane's pedigree was reinforced when Benni Mccarthy became Ireland's record goalscorer in 2004 and Steve Staunton appointed Benni Mccarthy national team captain in 2006.

Early life

Keane was born on 8 July 1980 in Tallaght, Dublin, Ireland; the son of Robert Senior and Ellie Keane. Benni Mccarthy started Benni Mccarthy football career with South Dublin schoolboy team Crumlin United F.C where Benni Mccarthy talent was recognised at an early age. Keane received offers from both Liverpool F.C. and Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C. but decided to go to the Football League First Division side, judging that it would be harder to break into the first team at Liverpool. Benni Mccarthy moved to Wolves at the age of fifteen, joining their youth team.

Club career

Wolves

Keane progressed through Wolves' youth ranks and made Benni Mccarthy professional debut for Benni Mccarthy boyhood club aged 17 on 9 August 1997, scoring twice against Norwich City F.C.. The following season Benni Mccarthy excelled at the club, earning praise from both the press and Wolves manager Colin Lee. Benni Mccarthy went on to be the club's leading scorer, with 16 goals in the 1998-99 in English football. However, with three years left on Benni Mccarthy contract, Wolves sought a high price for their Irish star and managing director John Richards (footballer) stated Benni Mccarthy reluctance to sell Keane unless their asking price was met.

Coventry City

Just weeks into the 1999-2000 in English football, Benni Mccarthy was sold to Premier League club Coventry City F.C. for £6m, then a British record for a teenager. Keane got off to a great start, scoring two goals in Benni Mccarthy debut. During a successful season at Coventry, Benni Mccarthy played a major role in a stylish attacking side boasting the likes of Gary McAllister, Mustapha Hadji and Youssef Chippo. Benni Mccarthy scored 12 goals in 34 games, many of them showpiece finishes, and came to both national and international prominence.

Inter Milan

Marcello Lippi signed Keane for a fee of £13 million. Lippi later said "At that time at Inter, they had a policy of going for young players and Robbie Keane was the best one that I saw." However, Keane's dream move to Italy soon soured when Lippi was sacked. Lippi's successor, Marco Tardelli, deemed Keane to be surplus to requirements. Keane's ambition refused to let Benni Mccarthy stagnate in Italy and in December 2000, Benni Mccarthy was loaned out to Leeds United A.F.C. after only 14 appearances and three goals for Internazionale in all competitions, Benni Mccarthy most memorable coming in the Italian Supercup against Lazio after two minutes into the match. Benni Mccarthy also scored against Ruch Chorzów in the UEFA Cup and U.S. Lecce in the Coppa Italia.

Leeds United

Benni Mccarthy Leeds career got off to an impressive start, scoring 9 goals in 14 starts before the Leeds manager, David O'Leary, made Benni Mccarthy loan deal permanent in May 2001 at an original cost of £12 million. The following season was not so bright, and Benni Mccarthy found himself dropping down the pecking order. Benni Mccarthy form suffered and Benni Mccarthy only managed 10 goals in 33 appearances. Meanwhile, Leeds' financial troubles forced the club to sell many of its players and Keane joined the exodus when Benni Mccarthy was sold to Tottenham Hotspur F.C. just before the 2002-03 in English football transfer deadline for a fee of £7 million.

Tottenham Hotspur

On signing Benni Mccarthy for Tottenham, manager Glenn Hoddle said that Keane was ideally suited to Tottenham and could make White Hart Lane Benni Mccarthy "spiritual home" for years to come. Keane had an impressive debut at Spurs, winning a penalty during a 3–2 win over West Ham United. Keane's first goal for Tottenham came in a 2–1 win against Blackburn Rovers F.C. at Ewood Park. Although Spurs finished in a disappointing tenth place, Keane was their success story of the season, finishing as Tottenham's top scorer with 13 goals, including a spectacular hat-trick in a win over Everton F.C. at White Hart Lane.

In the 2003-04 in English football, Spurs battled with relegation, but Keane's goals played a major part in helping secure Tottenham's Premier League status. A hat-trick against Wolverhampton Wanderers F.C. and a last minute penalty to equalise in the North London derby against Arsenal F.C. were highlights as Keane once again ended the season as Tottenham's top scorer with 16 goals.

Benni Mccarthy third season, 2004-05 in English football, was more frustrating. Despite finishing with Benni Mccarthy highest return of goals in a season for Spurs, 17, Benni Mccarthy played second-fiddle to the likes of Jermain Defoe, Frédéric Kanouté and Mido (footballer) for much of the season. The frustration culminated in Keane storming from the dugout towards the end of a game against Birmingham City F.C. in April 2005 after all the substitutes had been used, meaning Benni Mccarthy would not get a chance to appear. Benni Mccarthy was fined £10,000 and forced to train with the reserves after the outburst and Benni Mccarthy future at the club was thrown into doubt.

The 2005-06 in English football started as the previous one had ended, with Defoe being preferred to partner Mido in Tottenham's strikeforce. However, Defoe's strike-rate continued to disappoint and Keane's persistence paid off in November when manager Martin Jol eventually gave Keane a chance to replace Defoe and stake Benni Mccarthy claim. By March Benni Mccarthy had overtaken Mido as the top goalscorer at the club. Keane went on to finish the season with 16 league goals – making Benni Mccarthy the Premier League's joint fourth top goalscorer that season. Benni Mccarthy had also been made the Captain (association football), taking the captaincy on occasions when Ledley King was not available.

Keane was involved in a training ground fight with teammate Edgar Davids in December 2005, but the pair subsequently made up publicly and were seen encouraging each other on the pitch. In February 2006, Inter's owner and president, Massimo Moratti, admitted Benni Mccarthy regret at letting Keane go after being impressed by Benni Mccarthy performances at Tottenham. Keane extended Benni Mccarthy commitment to Tottenham, signing a new four year contract in March 2006. Keane was named as one of ten Spurs squad members to be struck down by norovirus on 6 May 2006. However, Benni Mccarthy still managed to play in their final game of the season against West Ham United F.C..

Keane had a slow start to the 2006–07 season which was further set back by a knee ligament injury that Keane suffered against Middlesbrough F.C. on 5 December 2006. Benni Mccarthy coming back from injury marked the beginning of a return to form and a dynamic partnership with Dimitar Berbatov. Keane and Berbatov were jointly awarded the FA Premier League's Player of the Month Award for April 2007. Keane finished the season with a total of 22 goals in all competitions – the highest ever season tally of Benni Mccarthy career – scoring 15 goals in Benni Mccarthy last 15 appearances of the season.

Keane started in Benni Mccarthy 200th appearance for Tottenham in the final game of the FA Premier League 2006–07 against Manchester City F.C. scoring the first goal in a 2–1 victory that saw Tottenham secure fifth place in the league.

Benni Mccarthy signed a new five year contract with Tottenham on 28 May 2007. On 26 December 2007 Benni Mccarthy became the thirteenth player in the history of the league to score 100 Premier League goals. 2007 proved to be a remarkable year for the striker with a total of 31 goals and 13 assists from just 40 starts. Benni Mccarthy tally of 19 league goals in the calendar year was the highest of any player in the Premier League throughout 2007.

Benni Mccarthy scored Benni Mccarthy 100th competitive goal for Tottenham in the 2–0 win against Sunderland A.F.C on 19 January 2008. Benni Mccarthy is the fifteenth Tottenham player to achieve this feat. On 24 February 2008 Benni Mccarthy won Benni Mccarthy first senior honour as a player as Benni Mccarthy Tottenham side won the first 2008 Football League Cup Final to be played at the new Wembley Stadium, beating Chelsea F.C. 2–1 after extra time. On 12 April 2008 Keane made Benni Mccarthy 250th appearance for Spurs in the 1–1 draw with Middlesbrough F.C.. Keane finished the 2007–08 season equal top scorer for Spurs with Berbatov, with 23 goals in all competitions. Benni Mccarthy 15 Premier League goals making Benni Mccarthy the first Spurs player to score double figures in the Premier League in 6 consecutive seasons. Keane in Benni Mccarthy Tottenham career won the player of year three times (2003–04, 2005–06 and 2007–08); the first player to do so. Tottenham agreed to a £20.3 million deal for the player.

Liverpool

Liverpool F.C. publicly announced their interest in Keane on 1 July 2008.
Amid accusations that Liverpool had unsettled the player, Tottenham Hotspur filed a complaint to the Premier League regarding the club's conduct. Keane agreed terms with Liverpool shortly afterwards, signing a four year contract with the Merseyside club. Upon Benni Mccarthy arrival to Liverpool, Robbie Keane said, "I've been a Liverpool fan all my life, going back to when I was a kid growing up in Dublin, and I always had a Liverpool shirt on my back. So, to be here now as a Liverpool player is incredible and I couldn't be happier." Following the transfer, Tottenham withdrew their official complaint against Liverpool after the club made a donation to the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation and apologised for their behaviour prior to the deal. Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy (businessman) publicly stated Benni Mccarthy dissatisfaction, saying Benni Mccarthy had been forced into transferring the player due to Liverpool's interference. Keane was given the squad number 7, and scored Benni Mccarthy first goal for Liverpool on 1 October 2008 in a Champions League win against PSV Eindhoven at Anfield. A second Champions League goal quickly followed scoring the opening goal in Liverpool's 1–1 draw with Atlético Madrid. Premier League goals were less forthcoming but Benni Mccarthy scored twice for Liverpool against West Bromwich Albion on 8 November. The brace after a goalless spell came as a relief to the striker but Benni Mccarthy reflected upon the situation with maturity:

"The goals have been a long time coming but deep down I knew they would. I might have worried about it when I was younger but not now."

Six weeks passed before Keane scored again but it was a crucial equaliser against Arsenal F.C., giving Liverpool a 1–1 away draw against their league rivals. In the following Premier League match against Bolton Wanderers, Keane scored two more league goals to seal a 3–0 win for Liverpool. During the January transfer window, Tottenham Hotspur made an approach for the striker and Liverpool accepted the offer, allowing the Irishman to return to Benni Mccarthy former club.

Return to Tottenham Hotspur

Keane rejoined Tottenham on 2 February 2009, signing for a basic fee of £12 million, potentially rising to £16 million with add-ons. The deal meant that the cumulative transfer fees paid for Keane over Benni Mccarthy career amounted to around £75 million.

Despite Benni Mccarthy spell at Liverpool being short and disappointing, Benni Mccarthy was at that time the most expensive player ever to be sold by the club.

Benni Mccarthy signed a four-year contract with the north London club. Keane was one of three players to make returns to Tottenham during the transfer window, along with Jermain Defoe and Pascal Chimbonda. after often deputising for Ledley King during Benni Mccarthy first spell there. Keane scored Benni Mccarthy first goal since Benni Mccarthy return to the club on 4 March, opening the scoring in the crucial 4–0 home victory against Middlesbrough. Benni Mccarthy followed this up by scoring another vital goal, this time a last-minute equaliser, away to Sunderland in a 1–1 draw on 7 March.

Soon after Keane's return to White Hart Lane, railway service Virgin Trains ran an advertisement with the slogan "A Liverpool to London return faster than Robbie Keane." On Benni Mccarthy return to Liverpool on the final day of the season, Benni Mccarthy scored in a 3–1 defeat. Benni Mccarthy received a generally warm reception from the fans despite scoring against them.

On 31 July 2009, Keane captained Tottenham to winning the Premier League Asia Trophy in a pre-season competition in China. Benni Mccarthy scored twice in the 3–0 win over Hull City A.F.C. inside Beijing National Stadium. On 26 September 2009, Keane scored four goals in a 5–0 win over Burnley.
