Fulham star Mark Schwarzer believes that eating steak for breakfast have helped him continue to play.

The goalkeeper, who will be 40 in October, admitted that his diet has turned heads but he has faith in the process.

“They [teammates] would probably say that I am extreme,” he said.

“But I don’t see it as being extreme any more.

“I actually enjoy it.

“I see the difference in myself and my own appearance and also how I feel.”

Schwarzer also believes that players, in general, can carry on playing for longer because of advances in sports science.

“All the indications are there,” he said.

“When you look at the leagues around the world, players seem to be going longer and staying fitter, and staying at the highest level longer than ever before.

“I don’t know if people register that. I don’t know if people take note of it.”
