Schwarzer hopes to find new club soon

Former Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer is confident his immediate future will soon be secured as he looks towards next year’s World Cup in Brazil.

Mark Schwarzer hopes to quickly find a new club.

The 40-year-old Australian international was let go by Fulham after the Premier League side recently signed Dutch international Maarten Stekelenburg to a four-year deal.

But after making over 150 appearances for the Cottagers, Schwarzer has his fair share of suitors, with a number of clubs in England and abroad hoping to secure the former Middlesbrough custodian.

And with Australia booking their ticket to Brazil 2014 with a 1-0 win over Iraq in Sydney last month, Schwarzer said he hoped to find a new club soon so he can start to prepare for the Socceroos’ South American adventure.

“Hopefully in the next couple of weeks something will be sorted,” Schwarzer told SBS. “At the moment I am just weighing a few things up.

“There have been some offers and it’s possible I could stay in England or move abroad. There are a few possibilities.

“Nothing concrete has been signed or sealed yet but I am feeling confident about next season leading towards Brazil.

“A lot of the decisions I have made about my future have cantered around the national team and now that we have qualified for another World Cup my top priority is finding a club in the lead-in and getting as much game time as possible.

“I always believed we would get there, though at times it’s been a rocky path but we got there in the end.”

Schwarzer has already declared the 2014 World Cup will be his last action in the international arena, but despite not ruling out a complete exit from football, he has yet to set a date on calling time on his club career.

But when he finally does decide to hang up his gloves, Schwarzer said he will fondly remember his time in London.

“I spent some of the best times of my career (at Fulham), particularly the first two seasons. They were two of the most enjoyable I’ve had in my career,” he said.

“I had a great time there and a great rapport with the fans. But there are new challenges out there and you move on.

“I have said I will call it quits with the national after Brazil but beyond that I not made a decision about anything.

“I just want to see how I go this year and put everything into preparing for the World Cup and see what happens after that.

“At this stage, I haven’t ruled out continuing playing club football. We will wait and see. If I am playing regularly and playing well then who knows. I am not ruling anything out.

“But right now, it’s about short-term goals and the full focus is on finding a new club - somewhere where the manager believes in me and wants me to be the number one for at least the next few months.”
