The LA Galaxy has re-signed Irish forward Robbie Keane with a multi-year contract. The move for the Galaxy in keeping a Designated Player like Keane was perfect for this upcoming season, which also includes the CONCACAF Champions League playoffs.
As reported by Yahoo Sports on Wednesday, Keane will stay with the Galaxy. Details on the contract were not release, but it was reported to be a multi-year contract.
Keane has been nothing but excellent for the Galaxy ever since he came from the Premier League back in 2011. In the three seasons with the Angeleno team, Keane has helped the Galaxy win two MLS Cup titles.
Robbie Keane has 55 regular-season appearances with 34 goals and 21 assists since playing with the LA Galaxy since 2011. Last season, Keane was awarded with the MVP award for accumulating 16 goals and 11 assists.
The 33-year-old Irish player still has what it takes to be on the field and will be very useful for this season. With his experience, the Galaxy should benefit much especially with the CONCACAF Champions League playoffs starting this month.
Having Robbie Keane as the experience striker on the squad will make many teams sweat, as the LA Galaxy look to be pretty strong again for the 2014 season.
