Bosnich considers a return to playing

After achieving a period of fame, fortune and ultimately infamy after receiving a drugs ban while playing for Chelsea, 36-year-old Bosnich says that he has got his hunger back for the game.

After a spell out of the spotlight used to get his life back on track, Bosnich has spent over three months of training with London club Queens Park Rangers, a spell which seems to have reawakened the passion for the game which.

"I've got my hunger back," he told the Melbourne Herald-Sun.

"Everything happens for a reason and I'm not complaining because football's been fantastic to me. There are quite a few options, and I'll explore every one of them."

Bosnich refused to be drawn on exactly what those options were, but many reports in the Australian press assume that they include playing.

The 'keeper did confirm that he had not been contacted directly by an Australian league club, though at least a couple are said to be monitoring the situation.

"One thing I did realise in the time I spent at QPR was that I can still do it," Bosnich insisted.

"And one thing I have to make sure of, for my own self-respect, is that I can do it at a comparable level to before.

"But equally, it's also very much down to whether there are people out there who want me, because I do have a lot of baggage."

Bosnich is also looking to possible options in the long-term future, such as a career as a football analyst.

Having made his commentary debut on the FA Cup Final he said: "That was fun. I really enjoyed it. Nothing beats playing but it was nice to do."
