Keane to return in a month


LA Galaxy head coach Bruce Arena has confirmed Robbie Keane will return from knee surgery in four weeks.

Keane travelled to Dublin to meet up with the Republic of Ireland squad for the recent international friendlies against Switzerland and Slovakia but he was unable to play in either game due to a knee problem.

On his return to Los Angeles, the Republic of Ireland captain underwent surgery at the Santa Monica Orthopedic and Sports Medicine Group and Kerlan-Jobe Institute at Cedars-Sinai, raising fears that he might not be back to full fitness in time for Euro 2016.

Arena, however, is confident the Ireland skipper will be ready to return in a month.

“He needed it; he had some loose pieces in his knee and needed to have those removed," Arena told the LA Galaxy official website. "It’s a fairly normal [occurrence].

"It’s cartilage and a lot of players have some type of issue with their knees at some point. He should be fine. I’d say in close to a month, he’ll be back to full speed."
