Soccer-Australia forward Cahill quits Melbourne City

MELBOURNE, Dec 6 (Reuters) - Australia forward Tim Cahill has quit A-League team Melbourne City effective immediately, the club said on Wednesday.

Cahill, Australia’s most prolific all-time scorer with 50 goals in 103 appearances, leaves after just over a year at the Manchester City-owned club.

“It’s never easy to say goodbye but it was great to win last weekend and make a contribution, and also to have the club sitting third in the league,” he said in a statement.

“Qualifying for the World Cup has been a great adventure, and it would be a massive honour to represent my country in Russia. That will be my focus in the coming months.”
