Keane rakes in $4.3m at LA Galaxy

ROBBIE KEANE is very much in the money when it comes to the MLS as the Ireland captain is the second-highest earner in the American league.

It is a standard policy in the MLS for clubs to release the salary details of players and it's been confirmed that Keane earns $4.3million a year at LA Galaxy, just below that earned by New York Red Bulls star Thierry Henry.

The earnings of Keane's compatriots are surprisingly low in comparison to England's Premier League. Darren O'Dea's contract with Toronto earns the Dubliner $456,250 a year and Andy O'Brien takes home $242,250 at Vancouver Whitecaps.

Keane has missed Galaxy's last three games due to injury but aims to be fit to face Vancouver – and O'Brien – next weekend.
