Robbie Keane is happy in the USA.
Robbie Keane joined the LA Galaxy from Spurs in 2011 and has since gone on to score 63 goals in 102 games for the reigning MLS champions.
The 34 year old Irishman won last season’s MLS MVP award, and although the season has just kicked off, he has already set his sights on extending his stay.
Mlssoccer.com reports that Keane wants to win a fourth MLS Cup and also wants to try and help LA Galaxy become the first American side to win the CONCACAF Champions League – a competition that’s been won by a Mexican side for the last nine seasons since Saprissa from Costa Rica won it in 2005.
He is quoted as playing down a return to the League of Ireland, saying ” I hate to say never [about returning home] because you just don’t know what’s going to happen in the future. I’ve still got a year left at the Galaxy and we’re negotiating another contract at the moment, so that will keep me there for a few more years.”
“Who knows? But it’s certainly not something at the moment that I’m looking at. But in the future you don’t know. After I finish playing, it is the coaching that I want to get into.”
Keane is the all-time record Irish scorer with 65 goals for his country.
