Robbie Keane post MLS Cup thoughts

By Adam Serrano

CARSON, Calif. -- Below are thoughts from Robbie Keane after the LA Galaxy's 3-1 victory over the Houston Dynamo.

(On winning the game...)

KEANE: “It's obviously fantastic. It means a lot more this year than it did last year because I was here for the start of the season. It felt like I contributed a lot more this season than last season. Obviously, delighted. Full credit to the team and the attitude that we've shown the last few months. People had wrote us off after the start of the season. The second half of the season was fantastic. We were certainly the best team the last few months and I think we deserved to win it.”

(On the penalty kick...)

KEANE: Me and Landon just looked at each other and he pointed. I respected the penalty taker because I've been a penalty taker my whole career. If Landon wanted to take it, he would have taken it but he pointed to me and thankfully I put it away. I think we knew that the game was over then."

(On the disallowed goals...)

KEANE: “I wasn't really too frustrated. The first one was offside. You half know as a player and then I saw the replay. The second one was not a foul from Omar. We'd be talking about it if we lost the game, but we didn't so it doesn't matter.”

(On his game...)

KEANE: “I don't to speak about myself too much. The most important thing about football is the team and being surrounded by players that help you. You can't win a game on your own. I've been very fortunate. We are a good team and we've been helping each other. The team's helped me score goals and if I can help them since I've been here, so great.”
