In a recent statement with Optus Sport (Australia), Cahill insisted he was not looking for another team. Instead of that, he would pursue other interests.

“No, I was an old man in football. I really wanted to continue playing, but you know, I was 39 years old. I had a great time in 6 months in India, but I interested in television and will start learning to become a coach, spending time with family and relaxing a bit, “Cahill said.

Cahill played more than 200 games for both Everton and Millwall in his career in England from 1998 to 2012. After that, he played for New York Red Bulls in MLS and in China for Shanghai Shenhua and Zhejiang Greentown, before returning back home to Melbourne City.

“It’s great to play on four big continents. I’ve had a great career and I’m really grateful to all. I’m a person who respects matches and will take the time to learn more. Coaching is a sure thing, “Cahill confirmed his next goal.
