Jedinak Scoops Another Award

2 January 2015

Eagles skipper Mile Jedinak has won another prestigious award, scooping the 2014 Football Federation Australia Player of the Year award.

It is the second year in a row that the Socceroos captain has been voted his country's top player after another solid season for Palace and Australia.

The 30-year-old is currently back in his homeland preparing for the upcoming Asian Cup competition, and has had the perfect start to 2015 by picking up this latest accolade, which was decided on the votes of Australia's national team coaches and FFA technical and coaching staff.

Last month he was also crowded as the AFC's International Player of the Year after impressing for the Eagles in the Premier League and captaining his country during the World Cup in Brazil.

After clinching the award, Mile said: "2014 has been quite a whirlwind, I don't think I can pinpoint one particular moment as a standout but at national team level captaining a side at a World Cup is still something that probably has yet to sink in to this day. 

"We performed admirably but didn't get the results that we wanted but we got the football community talking."
