Former defender Patrick Kisnorbo said Leicester City goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has proved dreams can be fulfilled regardless of age after the veteran was involved in back-to-back Premier League titles with two different clubs.
Monday was a landmark moment in sporting history as Leicester - almost relegated to the Championship last season - completed the ultimate rags-to-riches story, crowned champions of England without kicking a ball thanks to Chelsea's 2-2 draw against second-placed Tottenham.
It was a special moment for ex-Australia international Schwarzer, who at 43 years old is set to receive a winners' medal, despite not playing a Premier League match in 2015-16, having been part of Chelsea's triumphant season last term.
"He is the ultimate professional and it is fitting for him to go back-to-back," the recently-retired Kisnorbo told Omnisport.
"It's something he'll cherish, even at the latter stages of his career. He is a Premier League winner."
Schwarzer has made three appearances this season but none have come in the Premier League, as Kasper Schmeichel helped Leicester defy the odds.
Kisnorbo - a former international team-mate of Schwarzer's who spent four years at Leicester - added: "Age is just a number at the end of the day.
"He has proved to a lot of people that it doesn't matter how old you are, you can still succeed, still strive and achieve your dreams.
"Okay, he didn't play a lot of games but he was definitely part of it. He definitely pushed Kasper Schmeichel. If Schmeichel made a mistake, Schwarzer would've been there. It's a great story."
