Former Australian football Captain and a great player, Tim Cahill is all set to join the ISL season five. He will soon join the newbie Jamshedpur FC for the upcoming season of ISL. Jamshedpur FC who came into the cash-rich franchise Indian league in the previous season has signed a partnership with La Liga giants Atletico Madrid, and the team is currently in Spain for their pre-season preparations.
“It is almost a done deal, and Cahill’s team is fine-tuning the contract at the moment. We don’t expect any hurdle in finalising the deal,” told the club official to a renowned media house.
The deal was expected to cost less to the ISL side in $500,000, and the signing will hopefully resolve the problem of the Jamshedpur FC’s attack after they finished fifth in their debut season.
The India base franchise league have seen the likes of Dimitar Berbatov and Robbie Keane playing for Kerela Blaster and Atletico de Kolkata respectively, and now the fans will be enriched with the presence of Tim Cahill in the Jamshedpur’s side.
Tim Cahil appeared in four world cups for Australia including the previous one in Russia. He is a 38-year old Forward/ Attacking Mid-fielder but a marquee Australian professional. He defied his age in the last world cup season while playing for Australia but that was, unfortunately, his previous world cup appearance. He has appeared in approximately 200 matches for Premier League side Everton, but he will switch to ISL from Millwall. Tim has been a crucial player for Australia. He appeared in 107 games for his national side and scored 50 goals. Tim started his senior career as a professional in 1998 with Millwall, and then he switched to Everton. He belonged to a rugby-playing family but was encouraged to play football as a child.
