Carney content in Europe for now

Socceroos winger David Carney says he is content plying his trade in Europe and doesn't plan to return to Australia for some time.

The Norwich City man (on loan from Sheffield United) is loving the challenge of top-class English football and it could be a while until we see the 25-year old playing in the A-League.

"I've never considered coming back," he said.

"When I left the A-League I wasn't a bad player but I've definitely improved a helluva lot since I've been overseas.

"My tempo, being able to do things quicker. If I came back to the A-League I wouldn't want to lose my sharpness and momentum and my physical fitness.

"There are a lot of good players in the A-League but going overseas playing at that high tempo," added Carney.

"That's why I'm there and that's what I want to keep. My tempo."
