Australia great TIm Cahill has confirmed his retirement from football at the age of 39.
After a six-month stint with Jamshedpur FC in India’s Super League where he scored twice in 11 appearances, Cahill has revealed he will not be seeking a new contract.
Cahill told Optus Sport “I’m an old man now in football years.”
“But I’m interested in TV, going to start my A Licence (in coaching) and spend quality time with my family and chill out for a bit.
“It was amazing to play in four big continents. I had a great career and I’m really thankful.”
Cahill retires as the first Australian to score in the World Cup and the Socceroos’ top scorer with 50 goals from 108 international caps.
