Crystal Palace skipper Mile Jedinak is desperately waiting for the club to appoint a new manager following Tony Pulis' departure less than two days before the season began.
The Eagles are apparently at a disarray without the Welshman, who impressively guided them to an eleventh place finish last season, steering them away from the bottom when he took over.
"The club has to make a decision and I think everyone would like that (to be made quickly) just so that we know," the Australian international told newsshopper.co.uk.
However, he quickly pointed out that finding the right man for the job is not an easy task, especially while the campaign is ongoing, and will have to suck it up, so to speak, until the obstacle is finally hurdled.
"It's not been ideal," he added.
"Good or bad, people can say what they want, but we've still got a job to do."
"These are the circumstances we've been dealt and we have to get on with it as professionals."
