Mark Schwarzer insists he has no regrets over how his transfer to Arsenal fell through and is keen to earn a new contract with Fulham.
The Australian goalkeeper looked set to move to the Emirates at the start of last season, but Arsenal failed to meet Fulham’s valuation for their keeper. The 39 year-old has continued as the club’s number one under Martin Jol and hopes to trigger an option in his current contract that would earn him a one-year extension by continuing to make the sort of fine saves that kept out Sunderland last weekend.
Fulham go to Arsenal in the Premier League on Saturday and Schwarzer insists his focus is fully with his current club:
You can never harbour any regrets. What was done was done and you move on.
The minute I signed a new deal at Fulham the whole situation was dealt with, otherwise I wouldn’t have re-signed. I’m more than happy where I am and I’ve said from the day I arrived at Fulham that I love playing here. It’s been a great time in my career.
Who knows [if I will finish my career here]? That would be great but you never say never.
