Mark Schwarzer speaks English and German but probably knows how to communicate ‘cool’ in any language. His intimidating height and reputation are foiled only by his good nature.
Schwarzer’s English Premier League and European Club contributions, as well as his service to Australia’s international resurgence having participated in the last two FIFA World Cups, are testament to his remarkable football career commitment. Famously, Mark has used the same shin pads since he was 19 years old – perhaps a touchstone to his humble manner.
Mark currently plays at Leicester Football Club in the UK and, in November 2013 announced, after 109 appearances for Australia with the Socceroos, he was retiring from International Football. Mark Schwarzer has served his country well and is extremely regarded in the football world on a global level.
