If anyone had any suspicions relating to our evergreen keeper, Mark Schwarzer, retiring perhaps they need to think again.

Schwarzer, now forty years of age, is out of contract in the summer but the veteran Australian has already started negotiations with the club about a new contract, revealing in the local media,

‘I feel really good and don’t think the age thing is hindering my performances in any way.’

“I`ve had some initial discussions and the intentions are there at the club to keep me. But in what capacity we’ll have to wait and see. I want to be playing each week – that’s the key for me. I love playing and don’t want to be number two anywhere.’


How will this scenario turn out?

Will Mark get that assurance about being first-choice or does the club have a coaching role in mind for the veteran?
