Tomasz Kuszczak has expressed anxiety that his career is passing him by as long as he remains second-choice goalkeeper at Manchester United.
The Pole feels that he may well have to leave Old Trafford in order to progress, and cites Ben Foster, now at Birmingham City, as an example of a keeper who has left United to find regular football elsewhere.
"I could understand Ben's position," Kuszczak told the Manchester Evening News.
"He wanted to move because he wanted regular football and he wanted to play for England.
"But if I don't get enough games I will have to do the same as Ben."
Kuszczak is clearly concerned that his peak years could be behind him before he has the chance to enoy his football properly again.
"The years are going by and I will be 29 after this season," he added.
"I want to enjoy football and I want to play."
