Coaching kids a 'learning curve' for Robbie Keane

Published 21/01/2014 | 14:40

Going from captain to coach is a new experience for Republic of Ireland's Robbie Keane and he admits it's been a learning curve.

The Los Angeles Galaxy captain is taking a UEFA A and B diploma course this month, as he is unable to attend a similar course later this year.

The Dublin native was speaking at the launch of Three's 4G service, where he said he is enjoying the new experience.

"It's been well-documented that I've been doing my coaching badges and obviously any chance to teach kids and help them in any possible way. It's a learning curve for me too and the coaching this week has been fantastic," he said.

"The guys I work with on the course are between 18 to 21, but I have my own son who is four-years-old, and everyday he wants to play football. It's a little bit different teaching a four-year-old than teaching 18-year-olds. Mind you, sometimes the four-year-old has more sense than the 18-year-olds."

Many current and former players are also planning on taking part in the coaching course, including Gary Kelly, John O'Shea and Glenn Whelan.
