Australia boss Osieck: Ex-Sheffield United, Blackpool winger Carney running out of time

Australian national team manager Holger Osieck insists David Carney be running out of time in regards to his international career.

The 29-year old former Sheffield United, Norwich City, FC Twente and Blackpool wingback has not played for a club since departing Uzbekistani giants Bunyodkor in September last year and Osieck has sent a warning that he will need to find regular football soon if he is to again represent the Socceroos.

"That is a very difficult one because I haven't got any information recently - he's just trying to find himself a club," Osieck said when asked about Carney.

"He's definitely running out of time in Europe because the transfer window closes I think tomorrow or the day after tomorrow.

"I don't know what other options he may have on his plate. I don't know what his agent has ready for him.

"It's just very unfortunate that he has nearly lost six - seven - months playing which is never very productive."
