Millwall Mad Not To Make Cahill Enquiry

Millwall Mad Not To Make Cahill Enquiry

Chief executive Andy Ambler has said that Millwall would be mad to not throw their hat in the ring for Tim Cahill should he be made available for loan.

The MLS season finishes in December, and as is normal certain players are tipped for a short term loan return to England to help them boost their fitness over their own season break, and Tim Cahill is one of those being talked about for a return with Queens Park Rangers and Sunderland already said to have shown an interest.

Speaking to the Southwark News, Ambler said that in his opinion we would be mad not to see if Cahill's affection for the club had any sway in the decision he's likely to make.

'We'd love to talk to Tim about that. If he turned around and said 'thanks but no thanks' we'd have to respect that but we would be mad not to ask the question. Every club would want someone of his quality at their club - but never say never. We would love it to happen. We would love to talk to Tim and his representatives but we recognise there will be huge interest in him.'

The now 34 year old obviously began with us and found the net 52 times in six years before moving on, but it would be one hell of a long shot.

But if you don't ask in life you don't get do you, not like we've got anything to lose.

Holloway himself was very grounded when it came to hopes and expectations of this happening.

'I would sign Tim Cahill all day long but I don't want to lift our fans' hopes only for them to be let down. I wouldn't want to put Tim in an awkward position where he would have to turn down Millwall - that wouldn't be fair. We all know he loves the club and that he's a fantastic player. If I had a chance to speak with Tim, I'd tell him that we'd love to have him back but I would hate to make a legend choose someone else over us.'

Holloway goes on to say that it would be similar to the chat he had with Bobby Zamora, rather than an outright offer, the conversation would be about what the players was looking for matched up with what he was looking for as that would be the first hurdle.
