Strike ace also plans foray into management.
LA Galaxy hitman Robbie Keane has ruled out a second Premier League return this summer but has laid out his plans to move into management once his playing days come to an end, the Daily Mail reports.
The 32-year-old is expected to win his 127th cap for the Republic of Ireland as they take on Spain at Yankee Stadium this week has stated that he will finish his career in the MLS before beginning his coaching badges at the end of the year.
Keane recently signed a two year deal with an option of a third with the Californian club and has denied that he’ll return to the UK again.
“Go back to who? You’re just playing for the sake of playing and making the numbers up unless you are playing for Manchester United, Chelsea, Tottenham or Liverpool,” he said.
“I am very, very happy, very content where I am in this situation in my life. If you keep playing and keep producing and keep scoring goals, it doesn’t really matter where you are.
“I couldn’t tell you if it is the best move of my career to be honest with you. At that moment in time, it was the right decision for me and the family, and I certainly don’t have any regrets.
“I have just signed a two-year contract, possibly three years, so at this moment in time, I’m not thinking too far ahead. At the moment, I am very, very happy and I will just keep playing and keep plugging away.”
