Robbie Keane has launched a staunch defence of the MLS, claiming the League is 'not crap' while claiming top European players want to ply their trade in America.
"Why is it that all these players from Europe are wanting to come over here and play here?" he said.
"Because the league is crap?"
"Let's be honest. It's because the league is competitive. Now, it's tough. Now, it's a hard league.""
"After the Man United game, we didn't win anything tonight," Keane said of the result. "We didn't lose anything tonight, just a Man United game.
"The Premiership is a different breed," Keane went on. "Are we trying to close that gap? Of course we are.
"Will it take time? Yeah, of course it will take time. As long as we keep progressing...This league is only going to get better and better."
