Robbie Keane returns to training with LA Galaxy

See also

Robbie Keane recently began training once against with LA Galaxy and played his first match on Feb. 19 in a scrimmage against UCLA. The match was its penultimate preseason scrimmage, and Keane's first match of the year. He did play 45 minutes of the match and was able to score a goal for the Galaxy off a penalty kick.

Keane had surgery on his achilles tendon right after the season ended last year. It was something he had been meaning to get, but he never had enough time to heal; so, he took advantage of the longer offseason. This is why it took him a little longer to return to training, but head coach Bruce Arena feels he's almost back to being able to play.

Keane spoke out on his Facebook about how he felt during the scrimmage with UCLA:

First 35 minutes I felt very good and sharp, but the last 10 minutes, I was just going through the motions a little bit, which is to be expected.

The captain thinks he's progressing well and is prepared to take on LA Galaxy II -- Galaxy's new USL Pro club -- this Saturday. He will only get better with time. He has a little over a week to be ready for the season opener against Real Salt Lake.

Be sure to check Keane and LA Galaxy take on LA Galaxy II on on Feb. 22 at the StubHub Center in Carson, Ca.
