Irish Striker Robbie Keane To Sign Multiyear Extension With Galaxy
CARSON, Calif. (AP) – Irish striker Robbie Keane has agreed to a multiyear contract extension to stay with the LA Galaxy.
The Galaxy didn’t release terms of the deal announced Wednesday.
Keane has been one of Major League Soccer’s top scorers since moving to Southern California in August 2011. He has contributed 34 goals and 21 assists in just 55 MLS appearances while helping the Galaxy to win back-to-back league championships in 2011 and 2012.
The 33-year-old Keane has been a member of MLS’ Top XI in each of the past two years. He had 16 goals and 11 assists in 23 appearances last season.
The Galaxy also signed Landon Donovan to a lengthy contract extension last year. Their third designated player, defender Omar Gonzalez, is signed for the next three seasons.
