Tim Cahill to leave Millwall at the end of season

Australia’s all-time leading goalscorer Tim Cahill has apparently announced that he is leaving English Championship club Millwall.

Cahill is believed to be returning to New York to live with his family with his Millwall contract coming to an end.

The 38-year-old rejoined the London outfit on a short-term deal back in January, more than 20 years after he began his first stint at the club.

However, Cahill’s return to his first professional club turned out to be a largely unsuccessful spell. He has made 10 appearances, with no starts, and failed to find the back of the net.

He also received four yellow cards and was suspended for the final three games of the season towards the end of the Lions’ unsuccessful promotion campaign.

“Time flies when your (sic) having fun. Massive thank you to everyone in the club, the fans and most importantly the players,” Cahill wrote in a post on his Twitter account.

“A lot to be proud of this season and I have had the best time being back home where my career began. Blessed to have had this opportunity.”

Cahill was included in Bert van Marwijk’s provisional 32 player squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russia this summer.
