ROBBIE KEANE WASTED no time in getting on good terms with the LA Galaxy faithful, bagging a goal after just 21 minutes of his debut against the San Jose Earthquakes.

Now today’s Irish Sun (print edition) reports that the striker’s replica jersey is selling out faster than the MLS club can produce it.

A spokesperson for the Galaxy confirmed that the replica jerseys were “selling very well,” but did not provide any comment on supply shortages.
