London - Australian goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has signed a new one-year contract with Chelsea.

Schwarzer moved to Chelsea last year on a free transfer from Fulham and proved a reliable backup to Petr Cech.

He made 12 starts with the team, as well as a substitute appearance in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal against Atletico Madrid.

The 41-year-old Schwarzer, who holds the record of being Australia's most capped player, retired from international football in November.

Schwarzer also played for Middlesbrough and Bradford after moving to England from Germany's Kaiserslautern in 1996.

Portuguese goalkeeper Hilario left Chelsea earlier this week at the end of his contract.
