Tim Cahill made an surprising return to Millwall at the end of January and will benefit the Lions massively until May – even if it’s not on the pitch.
The 38-year old will be desperate to play and is sure to feature regularly between now and the end of the season as he looks to book a place in the Australia squad for the World Cup in Russia.
However, the impact that Cahill will make at The Den can’t just be judged on the goals and assists he is involved in for the next 15 games.
Firstly, you could see against Cardiff on Friday night how much his return means to the fans who still adore him after his first spell that brought much success.
As well as giving them a lift, his experience could be key to those in the dressing room and Neil Harris will be delighted his players can learn from someone who has achieved as much as Cahill has.
On the whole, the Millwall squad is made up of lower league players, so the chance to train and share a dressing room with Cahill could be invaluable.
The attacker has played at World Cups, across the globe and was a star in the Premier League so will be able to pass on great advice to his new teammates.
As well as that, the fact he can still turn out in the Championship at his age demonstrates just how professional he is and those high standards could rub off at Millwall.
So, whether it’s advice for younger players on how to look after themselves or scoring a trademark header at The Den, Tim Cahill will be bringing a lot to the club on his return.
