Mark Bosnich is keen to prove he still has it when he steps out again in a charity match in December. Bosnich recently completed a stint with the Central Coast Mariners in the A-League and is taking the festival match as a chance to showcase his skills for prospective clubs.
In an interview with the Herald on Sunday, Bosnich spoke openly about how he wants to prove to himself he can still play at the top level after such a long time out of the game.
"I had a massive hiatus, about six years, which is a very long time," Bosnich said.
"I didn't like the way I finished everything off, basically.
"I thought, not only do I owe it to my family and my fans but I owe it to myself.
"Number one, to see if I could do it again and number two, to give myself a purpose.
"When you haven't got a purpose in life it becomes very, very difficult."
Bosnich will be a part of the Oceania All-Stars team to take on the LA Galaxy at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand on Saturday December 6.
