Mark Bosnich believes that he can play at the top level once more.Mark Bosnich believes that he can play at the top level once more, insisting that he is as good as any of the goalkeepers at the big clubs.
The Australian's career has drifted since he picked up a drugs ban and was fired by Chelsea, but his ability was never in question and he is keen to play again.
Bosnich told Sky Sports News that only Carlo Cudicini and Petr Cech at Chelsea have impressed him - and that he considers the former a player on his level.
"I've only watched three games since my ban and I haven't been particularly impressed with what I've seen," said Bosnich.
"I don't see why I can't come back at the level I was before - maybe even better with the training I am doing and the discipline I now have.
"I didn't play for about nine months before I had my last 11 games for Chelsea and, without blowing my own trumpet, those games were the best 11 games I've had in my career on a consistent basis.
"If I can stay injury free - which will come with fitness and discipline - there's no reason why I can't come back.
"I've seen, without being disrespectful, what they have got at Arsenal, Manchester United and Liverpool and that they are not better than me, even now.
"The two best keepers are at Chelsea I've worked with one and watched the other one this week.
"There's no reason why I can't get back to that level. The second one (Cudicini), I worked with and he wasn't better than me.
"He may have been as good as me, but he wasn't better than me."
