Tim Cahill believes there is still 3 years of football left in him, but, he doesn’t seem to be interested in signing for any of the A-League clubs in future.
The veteran player who mostly plays as an attacking playmaker has hinted that he might end his career by spending a season or two in Italy or may be in some Asian country.
Cahill might call time on his international career pretty soon and just focus on club football.
He was actually expected to announce his international retirement after the World Cup itself, but, he did not do that keeping the AFC Asian Cup in mind which is going to take place at the start of next year. That might well be his last international assignment.
At this point of time, Cahill is a part of the American club New York Red Bulls. He has been doing fine there. He has scored 12 goals in 50 odd games. His contract there finishes in one-year time.
In an interview recently, when Cahill was asked what his next destination would be after leaving the Red Bulls, he said, “It would be a tricky call I would say. I have been to several wonderful places and I have enjoyed my time everywhere.”
“It would be good going to somewhere new. Italy is probably a place that intrigues me and the Asian continent as well. So, let’ see.”
A couple of Australian clubs might be disappointed hearing this statement of Cahill as they are believed to have been trying hard to lure the playmaker to his motherland.
Cahill has never played for an Australian club so far in his senior career. He spent a long time playing in England before moving to America in 2012.
