Marcus Bettinellli has revealed he may have to consider leaving Fulham if he isn't getting regular game time next season.
The 24-year-old reclaimed the number one shirt at the Cottage from David Button for the Ipswich Town victory and continued to be first choice right until the Play-off semi final defeat at Reading, but many fans called for the keeper to be recalled earlier than that.
He didn't manage to keep a clean sheet in the eight games he played, although he pulled off a number of vital stops, including one against Aston Villa which set Fulham on their way to their second goal as well as a superb save from Yann Kermorgant on Tuesday night.
He turns 25 later this month, and while his love for the club runs deep and is clear to anyone who speaks to him or watches him play, he has admitted he may have to look elsewhere for the benefit of his career, although making the number one shirt his own is his main target.
He said: "Its been a long season for me, it hasn't been a great season for me if we're honest.
"I love this club and I've been at this club for a long, long time but I'm going to be turning 25 in the summer and I want to be playing regular football, and this season I haven't done that.
"I've got two more years left and I want to stay here, I love this club and want to play for this club but at the end of the day I need games and if I'm not going to get them that's it, but hopefully I can get them and get this number one shirt.
"I think it's been a tough, long old season and I think if you said around Christmas time this was the position we'd be in we'd have taken but we wanted to go all the way.
"We're a great footballing team and have a great footballing manager it's a shame we haven't been able to do it this year and we'll come back stronger next year."
