Dimitar Berbatov has explained what made his partnership with Robbie Keane at Tottenham so special.

For two seasons they combined to terrorise defences in the Premier League, with the pair scoring 43 goals between them in the 2007/08 season.

Speaking on Sky Sports' Goals On Sunday, the Bulgarian outlined what made his relationship with the Dubliner so special.

"We had a great relationship with him. He knows me, he knew how I was. I don't speak a lot, just keeping to myself.

"When I go to the pitch, it's all about the team. No selfishness, play with the teammates. Even if I don't like someone, I'm going to pass him the ball if he's in a better position to score.

"With Keano, I like him a lot because he was on the pitch, on the pitch, everywhere. He was there for the team, for teammates, joking around. When he needed to be serious, he was.

"I cannot say we were speaking constantly but sometimes good players do not need to speak - you just click. I knew where he was, he knew where I was. We were just working great.

"I was watching Andy Cole the other day on a programme and they were asking him about Dwight Yorke. He said, 'Good players, we didn't work, we just clicked.' It was the same with me and Robbie, we just clicked. We just knew how to play with each other."
