Cahill quits Melbourne City

MELBOURNE: Australia forward Tim Cahill has quit A-League team Melbourne City and will seek a new home to boost his chances of playing at a fourth successive World Cup.
Cahill, Australia’s all-time top scorer with 50 goals, leaves after netting 13 times for the Manchester City-owned club in all competitions since joining in August 2016.“It’s never easy to say goodbye but it was great to win last weekend and make a contribution, and also to have the club sitting third in the league,” the former Everton and New York Red Bulls forward said in a statement on Wednesday, his 38th birthday.
Cahill, who arrived on a lucrative three-year deal, leaves only nine rounds into his second A-League season and after threatening to quit the Warren Joyce-coached City if not given more playing time.
He was used as a 77th-minute substitute in City’s 2-1 win at Newcastle Jets on Saturday.The evergreen Cahill underlined his enduring class with two goals to help defeat Syria in the Asian World Cup playoff in October.At 38, he would be unlikely to secure football at a prominent European club, so a return to Asia may be his best bet.
