Robbie Keane: Training with Al Ahli

In-demand striker Robbie Keane has been pictured training with Al-Ahli as he prepares for his next career move.

The former Republic of Ireland captain left LA Galaxy in November and, as a free agent, has been linked with a host of English sides including Sunderland and Preston.

But the United Arab Emirates side tweeted photographs of Keane training with them on Monday, captioned: “Irish star Robbie Keane participates in morning drills.”

Al-Ahli currently sit fourth in the Arabian Gulf League table.

Keane, 36, started his stellar career in 1997 with Wolves, going on to play for Coventry, Inter Milan, Leeds, Tottenham, Liverpool, Celtic, West Ham and the Galaxy.

Last year he retired from international duty as the Republic of Ireland’s record goalscorer with 68 in 146 matches.
