Sch­warzer brings ca­reer to Ful stop

Midweek Sport - - SPORT -

VET­ERAN goal­keeper Mark Sch­warzer tops the list of six first-team play­ers leav­ing Ful­ham.

The 40-year-old turned down sev­eral of­fers of a new deal at Craven Cot­tage and found his No.1 sta­tus in doubt af­ter man­ager Martin Jol signed Maarten Steke­len­burg from Roma for £4mil­lion last month.

Sch­warzer is seek­ing first-team football as he looks to make Aus­tralia’s World Cup squad for next sum­mer’s tour­na­ment in Brazil.

Winger Si­mon Davies, the club’s long­est-serv­ing player, as well as mid­field­ers Chris Baird and Gior­gos Karagou­nis have also been shown the door as Jol looks to re­build his squad af­ter a late slump last sea­son.

Striker Mladen Pet­ric, who lasted just one sea­son in south Lon­don, is no longer wanted.

And back-up keeper Cs­aba So­m­o­gyi is also af­ter a new club.
