Jaaskelainen keen to play on

Bolton Wanderers goalkeeper Jussi Jaaskelainen says he wants to continue playing until he is at least 40-years-old. The 34-year old is approaching 400 league appearances for the Trotters since arriving from Vaasan Palloseura in 1997, and still has three years left on his contract at the Reebok Stadium.

And the Finland international - who has 51 caps for his country - says he has no plans to hang up his gloves just yet.

“I'm not that old for a Premier League goalkeeper," he said.

“When this contract finishes I'll be 37 and hopefully I will avoid big injuries so I can't see why I cannot play beyond this contract.

“If you don't look after yourself you are not going to be a success on the field any more because you know others will look after themselves.

“You have to keep on top of your game and make sure you do the right recovery.”
