Upon announcing his decision Keane again denied that he had moved to LA for financial reasons and that the weather was the main issue. “There’s only so long someone from Tallaght can take the heat of LA. Might try the heat of Australia or Qatar instead.” Robbie “the unidentified fan” Keane (33) was coy on his plans for when he hangs up his boots for good. “Media work does interest me. Becks (David Beckham) says I have a face for radio and the personality of a door so that’s something to look in to.”
Keane did express a wish to return to Ireland at some point in the future. “I don’t know what the future holds for the Keanes, but clearly I need to move my kids back to Dublin so the Dubs can beat that LA accent out of them.”
