Tim Cahill’s representatives say Shanghai Greenland Shenhua have not spoken to them about off-loading the Socceroo great to another club.
A report in Australia today claimed the player’s future at the Chinese Super League club was in doubt after one goal in his first 13 games at the club.
Watchers of the big spending Chinese Super League team have noted the more defensive role Cahill has been forced to play, which may account for the fewer goal-scoring positions he’s been getting into.
Cahill broke his nose in a recent game but was back training just a few days later and is reputed to be one of the fittest players at the club.
The Australian joined the club shortly before the start of the Chinese season. The side started the league strongly but have fallen to 12th on the table.
Cahill has played every game of the season at Shanghai Shenhua and was part of the Socceroos' opening World Cup 2018 qualifier victory over Kyrgyzstan this week.
