- Story Text:Striker Robbie Keane will leave the Los Angeles Galaxy when his contract expires at the end of this year, the team announced Thursday (November 17).
The 36-year-old from Ireland spent six seasons with the Major League Soccer club, winning three MLS Cups and being named the league Most Valuable Player in 2014.
"Robbie's been a tremendous leader, we've won championships with him, he's been a prolific scorer and arguably one of the best designated players in the history of the league," Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena said. "He's had a fabulous six years, I think the LA Galaxy and our fans are indebted to the contributions Robbie's given to our club."
Keane also announced recently he will no longer play for the Irish national team but stopped short of saying he would totally give up the sport.
