Jedinak reveals extraordinary bond

A DRAINED Mile Jedinak revealed that the Socceroos had developed an extraordinary team bond in Brazil, declaring he was proud to lead this side despite failing to claim a point in three games.

But Jedinak said he was no certainty to retain the captaincy for the Asian Cup, just like no player could stake a claim for a certain first XI role.

Jedinak, who is captain of English Premier League side Crystal Palace, said coach Ange Postecoglou would monitor the squad in the coming months before making any calls.

"The boss has said it (no guarantees) and rightly so, it's not something you get comfortable with," Jedinak said.

"You do your job and you do it the best you can when asked but no-one in this group should feel they've earned any right for a spot in the starting 11.

"You have to work for that day in day out — how you conduct yourself on and off the pitch and that message has been given to us loud and clear by the boss and I think that's the best way forward.

"I've been honoured to lead this bunch of boys in the heat of battle in the World Cup on the biggest stage, it's been an absolute honour and pleasure.

"I've had some great support with my teammates and the senior players within the group and we just bonded together."
