Crumlin United have brilliant response to LA Galaxy's classy tribute to Robbie Keane
Crumlin United have proven that anything LA Galaxy can do, the Dublin club can do better.
Yesterday, Keane's current club Galaxy took out a front page advertisement in the Irish Times paying tribute to Ireland's record goal scorer. The ad contained a picture of Keane with simple message from LA Galaxy reading: “Congratulations Keano! The LA Galaxy would like to congratulate Robbie Keane for all of his accomplishments in his remarkable 18-year career with the Republic of Ireland.”
The ad generated a big response, with fans taking to social media to hail LA Galaxy for their thoughtful message.
But Crumlin United have gone one better.
The south Dublin club - where Robbie Keane played most of his schoolboy football - took out an ad in Ireland's biggest selling newspaper, the Irish Independent, with a picture of Keane and a message that reads: "@LA Galaxy. He ended with you, but he started with us #crumlinunited."
The ad, on page three of today's Irish Independent, included a Crumlin crest and a line at the bottom saying: "Thanks for the memories Robbie."
Well played Crumlin.
