Keith Treacy has targetted a return to the game

A terrible mixture of alcohol and depression put out the fire in the belly, and dulled the talent, which had made Dubliner Keith Treacy a Premier League player and an Ireland international at the age of 21.

But now, three years after he walked away from football planning to never play again, the boy from Sheriff Street has rediscovered the drive which had him within sight of greatness.

"I would like to get playing again," says Treacy, capped six times by Giovanni Trapattoni. "I'd like to get back training and get ready for next season. I am a free agent and I could play now, but maybe it'd be better to have a few months to get myself ready for next season.
