Northern Ireland goalkeeper Roy Carroll admits he is enjoying football again after falling out of love with the game.

Carroll made his first competitive start for Northern Ireland in six years during last Friday's 2-0 defeat by Russia after winning his place back in the squad.

The 34-year-old is happy with life at Olympiakos after moving to six different clubs since his departure from Manchester United in 2005.

"I moved to Greece and I've worked hard out in Greece and playing football out there and I am enjoying it," Carroll told Sky Sports News.

"I am enjoying football again. I lost that love for football but I am back in playing again and enjoying it.

"If you are enjoying football things will come to you, that's all I can do, work hard in the training pitch and show the manager I am good enough to play.

"After leaving Manchester United I think I have moved six or seven clubs but now I am settled.

"My family is in Greece and I have settled down now in Greece and hopefully I can have a good campaign there this year as it's my last year in Olympiakos so I am hoping I can play well and keep performing out there and that's what it is all about and enjoying it."
