Robbie Keane will be ready for LA Galaxy season opener

MLSSoccer.com reported on Jan. 29 that Los Angeles Galaxy captain Robbie Keane will be ready to play for Galaxy's season opener. This is great news for Keane and for all Galaxy fans. The Galaxy captain made the most goals for the club last year and will hopefully continue to score impressive shots to move the club forward and hopefully make it to the playoffs once more.

Because LA Galaxy was eliminated early on in the playoff race, Keane took advantage of the longer offseason to finally get the achilles tendon surgery he had needed. He knew that it would give him proper time to heal and be ready to play in time for the season opener for the Galaxy. His achilles tendons often caused him injury which lead him to miss many matches for both LA Galaxy and Ireland's National Team. This is something no one wanted, and hopefully with the surgery he will have less injuries and more time on the pitch.

Over the break he had been in Ireland working on getting his coaching credentials. While out there he also did some rehab with the Irish national team trainer. He did not want to miss time to help his road to recovery. He is now back in Los Angeles but is taking it slow; he does not want to aggravate his surgery and wants to be fully fit for the opener.

LA Galaxy's 2014 home opener will be against Real Salt Lake and take place at The StubHub Center in Carson, Ca. on Mar. 8.
