Richard Dunne has admitted he’d be thrilled to follow Robbie Keane to Hollywood - but only when the time is right.
The Aston Villa and Ireland centre-half thinks Keane’s decision to join MLS giants LA Galaxy was a clever move – one he would not rule out for himself in two or three years.
“If the opportunity came at 34, 35, I’d definitely take it,” Dunne said in today's Irish Daily Star.
“I think it would be nice to live the lifestyle out there.”
Dunne turns 32 later this month and will make his 62nd appearance for Ireland tomorrow night in the crucial Euro 2012 qualifier with Slovakia at the Aviva.
When asked about his international future and whether or not he would continue on in the green shirt for the 2014 World Cup campaign, Dunne sat on the fence.
“I don’t know yet. We’ll see,” he said.
“If we qualified [for Euro 2012] then you might start thinking we’re going through a period where we might start qualifying for more tournaments.
“I wouldn’t want to miss out on that if I had the chance.”
