More than likely, Robbie Keane's next club will be in MLS. Following LA Galaxy's elimination from the playoffs earlier this month, Keane sounded confident about his playing career continuing in the league. At the time, he had not been released by Galaxy. But given his record in MLS over the last five years, it would not be a surprise for a North American club to pick him up.

Keane reiterated his desire to continue playing in an open letter following his Galaxy departure, saying that he wanted 'one last major challenge in club football'.


Should that MLS move not happen, Keane may have other options open to him. One them is Australian side Brisbane Roar. Their managing director Mark Kingsman told the Sydney Morning Herald that Keane is certainly a player who would interest them.

When you've got somebody of Robbie Keane's calibre and pedigree, I'm sure every A-League club would be interested but we haven't made an approach yet. We will make the call.

Brisbane are a team with plenty of recent success. In the past five seasons, they've won three A-League titles and currently sit third in the table.

They are also managed by a former Coventry teammate of Keane's - Australian international John Aloisi.
