‘The signing of such a promising young midfielder is testament to our club’s new vision to integrate young talent into our squad and first-team environment.

“The addition of Shae promises an exciting era for the Roar family.”

It is understood Cahill’s contract has been terminated by mutual consent after spending most of his time playing for the Roar youth team in recent months.

His father Tim Cahill retired in 2019 as the Socceroos’ top scorer, with 50 goals in 108 games for the national team.

Cahill also scored at three consecutive World Cups for Australia in 2010, 2014 and 2018.

To put that achievement into perspective, only four players have found the back of the net at four consecutive World Cups: Brazilian superstar Pele, prolific German duo Uwe Seeler and Miroslav Klose plus Portuguese goalscoring machine Cristiano Ronaldo.

Cahill, the attacking midfielder turned striker, was an instant success with Millwall in the Championship before securing a move to the Premier League with Everton in 2004, where he was a fan favourite.

Late in his career, Cahill played for the likes of MLS club New York Red Bulls, Shanghai Shenhua in China and A-League glamor club Melbourne City before ending up at Indian Super League club Jamshedpur FC.

He is now Chief Sports Officer of Qatar’s Aspire Academy, an institution with the vision to be the world’s leading sports academy.
