Reactions on Robbie Keane’s MLS MVP trophy

The 34 years old Irish veteran was named MVP on the 2014 MLS season. Here below are the quotes from the LA Galaxy members:

MVP R. Keane:

“To be in the running the last few years, it just goes to show how consistent I have been, you know? To win it, it’s actually great to be recognized by your fellow professionals and the media. I’m delighted with the award, but I’d certainly trade it in for a championship on Sunday.”

“The last couple years I’ve been struggling really bad with Achilles’ problems,” he said. “I was waking up in the mornings, and I could hardly walk. It took me ages to get going in training, so since the operation, I feel great.”

“If you hate something that you do, you wake up every morning, you’re not looking forward to going into work, whether that’s football or a 9-to-5 job. If you don’t like what you do, then the battle is probably done already. For me, I wake up every morning looking forward to practice. I wake up every Saturday and Sunday desperate and can’t wait to play the game.

“It’s not about the money. I don’t care about the money. For me, it’s about playing. I’d play for free. When I finish playing football, I’ll go back to Ireland, I’ll be a manager or whatever, and I’ll still play on Sunday with my mates. It’s just the way I am.”

LA Galaxy coach B. Arena:

“We think Robbie’s spectacular. He’s remarkable in the sense that his consistency year in and year out has been spectacular. And you don’t see that typically of strikers. …

“He sets the tone for our team each and every day. He’s a great professional, he’s good with our young players, he’s fabulous in getting the team ready to play. Those things you don’t see in the box score, for sure, but he’s that guy with our team.”
