Mark Schwarzer will not be moving away from London and is still desperate to play at the top flight, after dismissing rumours of a move to the Hyundai A-League.

The 38-year-old has ruled out a quiet and steady retirement back to his homeland, as he takes up international duty in a friendly against Wales on Wednesday evening.

"I have seen too many players go back home and it has not worked out," he said.

"The biggest example is John Aloisi, and how he was treated so badly by people. You are up there to be shot down very, very quickly.

"I don't want to give anyone the opportunity to do that to me.


"The truth is returning from Europe is a step down, and I don't want to be in that situation.

Fulham obtained Schwarzer's services in 2008 in a free transfer from Middlesbrough, and the goalkeeper's ambition has since led him to be linked to Arsenal back in 2010, which in contrast to rumours of a homecoming move, “flattered” the Australian.
