Audio: Robbie Keane Was Pretty Pissed Off At Having A 3PM Kickoff Yesterday (NSFW-ish)
By Paul O'Hara Updated

Here's some audio of Robbie Keane expressing his reasonable displeasure at the fact that his LA Galaxy side were forced to play a non-televised match versus Chicago Fire at 3pm yesterday.

His anger was centred on the fact that the players were subjected to the full force of the midwestern summer sun without having any real need to do so.

For the record, the game ended in a 1-1 draw. The Fire went 1-0 up thanks to Jeff Larentowicz before Landon Donovan equalised in the difficult conditions.

Keane's quote in full:

I don’t know who makes these fucking stupid decisions. Play a fucking game at three o’clock in the afternoon. Who wants to watch that crap? Do you? I don’t want to watch that crap.

These people who haven’t got a clue about soccer make these decisions when we play a game. Why not play at eight o’clock? It wasn’t on national television. It’s so stupid. They need to look at these games and use their head and be clever.

No player wants to play in that humidity. Everyone was affected by the heat. Why would you want to play at three o’clock in the afternoon? On the hottest day of the year so far here in Chicago, knowing it is going to be that hot. And you can’t blame the Kings-Hawks game because you didn’t know that was going to happen until two days ago.

This is absolutely ridiculous. We have to stop. We have to listen to the players instead of listening to people who have never kicked a soccer ball in their whole life.
