Blackburn's Emerton keeps door ajar for A-League return

Blackburn Rovers winger Brett Emerton says he will one day return to Australia to play in the A-League.

The 32-year old, who became the equal-second most-capped Australian international with his 87th appearance against Wales on Wednesday, admits he feels good in the Premier League at the moment but can see himself playing in Australia's domestic competition in the future.

"I do still feel like I have a lot to offer and who knows how long the body will hold up for," he said.

"At the moment I am feeling good but I have always said that I would like to play in the A-League and I don't want to go back and play when I am old and can't run.

"I would like to go back when I am in decent shape and play a major role."
