He’s into his 13th season in the AFL, a feat not many players achieve, but Todd Goldstein is confident he still has plenty of footy left in him.
The North big man signed a new deal last year, taking him through to the end of 2022.
By that time he’ll be 34, but Goldstein says he isn’t setting any limits.
"I am probably feeling as fit as I ever have," Goldstein told The Herald Sun.
"I realise I am going towards the final phase of my career, but I'll keep playing for as long as my body and my mind allows me to play, as you are a long time retired.
"I'm confident I have got a fair bit of footy left in me, and hopefully we can have some success in that time."
Goldstein said he never had any hesitation extending his career at North.
"You see very few players leave North Melbourne,” he said.
"Josh Gibson (Hawthorn) was one of the few, but there haven't been many who have left, other than those who have not been getting a game.
"There is just something about this place.
"Rhyce, Brady (Rawlings) and Jade (Rawlings) have tried to tap into that philosophy and the direction we are going in really excites me.”
Coming off one of the best years in his career, Goldstein is excited for what the future holds.
"We do have a fairly good list profile in terms of age, there are only a few of us who are over 30,” he said.
"Rhyce has been very clear in his messaging. He wants us to be successful, that's the goal and that's why we are working so hard to make that happen."
