Legendary coach 'Restless Rudi' dies aged 93

Rudi Gutendorf
Rudi Gutendorf's globe-trotting career, spanning half a century, saw him coach a record 55 teams.

Rudi Gutendorf, the tireless manager who guided a world record 55 teams, including 18 national sides, has died at 93, according to several German media outlets.

Born in Koblenz on the banks of the Rhine, the man dubbed "Restless Rudi" started his football career as a player for hometown club TuS Neuendorf before taking his first management role with Swiss side Blue Stars Zurich in the 1950s.

New Zealand need just a point from their final group game against Fiji to book their place in the Oceania World Cup qualifying playoff.

After picking up four points from their games with Solomon Islands in November, the All Whites knew that the same return from this week's double-header against Fiji would give them an unassailable lead at the top of Group A.

Wellington Phoenix demand A-League relook during international breaks

Wellington celebrate Roy Krishna's goal.
The Wellington Phoenix will be without seven players due to the international break when they face the Newcastle Jets.

The Wellington Phoenix have run out of patience with Football Federation Australia (FFA), issuing a vigorous demand for an international window in the A-League.

In a strongly-worded statement, Phoenix general manager David Dome says the integrity of the competition is undermined by the FFA's refusal to budge on the issue.

The problem is highlighted again this Sunday when a Phoenix side missing seven key players -- six All Whites and Fijian Roy Krishna -- host the Newcastle Jets in a key fixture.
