â€śIâ€™m 30 now and I think over here I could play until I'm 34 or 35, but this is a last chance for me,â€ť he said. â€śMitch hasnâ€™t said that to me but I know myself if I donâ€™t get a contract for next year then it will be back to the State League and I donâ€™t think Iâ€™d get another chance in the A-League.â€ť
Dave Mitchell as no doubt Anthony is good enough to play in the A-League but said he still had to prove he could commitment to the rigours of a full-time environment.
â€śTechnically, heâ€™s a very good player and you can see heâ€™s played at a very high level in his younger days,â€ť said the Glory boss. â€śHeâ€™s got until the end of the season to prove to me that he can lose a bit of weight, maintain his fitness and look after himself. If he can do that, heâ€™ll be with us next season.â€ť
