Evergreen Australian striker Daniel McBreen says he is in career-best form at the ripe old age of 36.
The Central Coast Mariners forward, who is currently on loan with Shanghai SIPG until October 30, became a YouTube sensation this week after his long-range wonder strike against Dalian Aerbin.
McBreen credits Mariners head coach Graham Arnold for his purple patch and has no intention of hanging up the boots any time soon.
"My all-round game is flourishing right now," McBreen told The World Game.
"I wish I'd had this all-round game when I was 25.
"I think playing in the number 10 role the last couple of years has helped and I wish I'd had Arnie as a coach 15 years ago.
"He's helped me bring another dimension to my game and made me a better player.
"I haven't seen any coach in my career that comes near him.
"His knowledge of tactics and his man management are superb, and he'll do anything for you if you have problems and he helps you develop your game.
"I also think coming China has been good for me. When you get a little older you need to be playing regularly, long breaks don't do you any good."
Last season's A-League Golden Boot winner was clearly proud of his outrageous goal for Shanghai SIPG.
"I couldn't have hit it any sweeter and the ball flew just under the crossbar. I really only had one thing on my mind and that was to have a go, especially seeing the keeper straying off his line," McBreen said.
Asked if he would ever score one better, McBreen joked: "I'm going to try and do it again next week. It was really just one of those things I could try a thousand times again and it wouldn't come off.
"There’s been some talk around the place that it could be voted Goal of the Year. I am trying to stay humble about it but moments like that don't come around in life too often, so I might as well enjoy it.
"I'm told there have been over 30,000 hits on YouTube, of which about 28,000 are probably from me.
"I actually got Man of the Match also and I was happy with my all-round game.
"It wasn’t just about the goal."
