Tim Cahill Has Blown The Whistle On His Soccer Career
A true Socceroos legend
Australian soccer legend Tim Cahill has hung up the boots for good, after announcing his retirement.
He'd previously retired from international duty last November, but continued playing in the Indian Super League with Jamshedpur, scoring twice in 11 games.
He's chosen not to chase a new deal, instead turning his attention to coaching and other commitments.
Speaking to Optus Sport, Cahill said "No, I'm an old man now in football years."
"I'd love to keep playing, you know 39, had a great stint for six months in India."
"But I'm interested in TV, going to start my A Licence (in coaching) and spend quality time with my family and chill out for a bit."
Cahill scored 50 goals for the Socceroos in 108 internationals, scored the first ever World Cup goal for Australia, scored in three World Cups and scored the most goals at the World Cup by an Australian, with five.
