Senator helps Cahill land in MLS

Australian English Premier League veteran Tim Cahill officially became a New York Red Bull after spending four days in Canada during the visa acquisition process with which U.S. Senator Frank Lautenberg (D-NJ) reportedly aided.

“It was nice to know that people here care that much,” Cahill said. “It’s nice to know that people worked hard to get me here. In that respect, waiting for the visa wasn’t that bad. It was crazy. I had about six flights here and there, not knowing where I was going. But I’m here now, ready to go.”

Cahill, 32, received his U.S. working visa Tuesday, enabling him to leave Montreal and come to New Jersey, where he was introduced at a press conference at Red Bull Arena and became the team’s third Designated Player, joining Frenchman Thierry Henry and Mexican Rafa Marquez.

Cahill's multi-year deal is believed to be for 3-and-a-half years, and worth $3.5 million per season. The Australian World Cup veteran spent the last of eight of his 15 years in English soccer with Everton.
