Socceroo Tim Cahill wants the A-League and the FFA to show more vision before he would entertain a move back home.

“There’s no shadow of a doubt that I think about it (playing to the A-League), it’s where I was born and I’ve never closed the door on the A-League,’’ Cahill said in an interview with the Herald Sun.

“I just need vision, I’ve never asked for anything else, but some people’s vision is not as big as mine and it’s tough. It depends where the A-League wants to be.

“All these players linked to the A-League, it’s the same problem that they’ve had. ‘Come to the A-League’ and then I don’t even think that talks get to the table because there’s no vision behind it."

The 36-year-old said that the league has not capitalised on its opportunities to grow the game.

“The (Alessandro) Del Piero saga was one of the best things to happen to the game but also the worst because it wasn’t capitalised on.

“When Andrea Pirlo was thinking about coming to the A-League, I said (get him) whatever it costs. Anyone of Pirlo’s, (Steve) Gerrard’s, (Frank) Lampard’s, Kaka’s, (Thierry) Henry’s stature will blow this league up.

“We have the lifestyle, great schools, great cities. The only thing they we don’t have investment in the league.

He also had a dig at the FFA's handling of the national side.

“The game’s in a bit of a rut and caught in a crossroads. We’ve played in three World Cups and don’t have anything to show for it and the national team is three years without a sponsor.’’
