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.

Coaching proved infectious, and after building an impressive CV with top flight teams in West Germany, Gutendorf...

Duisburg keeper's bottle that led to bizarre goal to be auctioned for charity

Duisburg have announced that they plan to auction off the very water bottle that played a central role in one of the most bizarre goals ever scored.

After assuming that Duisburg had scored in their 2. Bundesliga game against Ingoldstadt at the weekend, goalkeeper Mark Flekken turned to take a swig from his bottle, only for the ball to promptly end up in the back of his net.

After just about overcoming the embarrassment, Flekken has now decided to offer up the bottle for sale in order to raise a...

MSV Duisburg keeper Mark Flekken pays price for switching off at wrong time

Duisburg goalkeeper Mark Flekken produced an all-time blooper on Saturday vs. Ingolstadt.
Duisburg goalkeeper Mark Flekken made an all-time blunder Saturday vs. Ingolstadt.

Goalkeeper gaffes are nothing new in football, but the manner in which Duisburg goalkeeper Mark Flekken covered himself in shame on Saturday might just be a sporting first.

In his side's 2. Bundesliga match against Ingolstadt, the Dutch keeper went from hero to zero in a matter of seven minutes, stopping a penalty in the 11th minute before conceding a goal so cringeworthy it will be played on loop in blooper reels for years to come.

After an Ingolstadt goal kick, Ingolstadt quickly worked the ball...

Duisburg hit post FOUR times in one madcap goalmouth scramble

MSV Duisburg conceded twice within the first six minutes before eventually slumping to a 3-1 away defeat against Fortuna Dusseldorf in the German second tier on Monday evening.

However, the visitors did at least try to mount a comeback after the interval, only to somehow manage to hit the woodwork four times in the space of 2.5 seconds.

To hit the post once, maybe twice is unlucky. To hit the post four times in the same goalmouth flurry is just plain old bonkers.

The result saw Dusseldorf cement...

Michael Tonnies 1959-2017: The man who scored a five-minute hat trick

Michael Tonnies
Michael Tonnies has died at the age of 57.

Behind him, some players fight for the ball as a souvenir but Michael Tonnies isn't bothered. Sporting a classic 1990s mullet and a moustache, which badly needs shaving, the MSV Duisburg forward has just scored five goals in his side's 6-2 win against Karslruher SC -- and he set up the other one too.

On his 80th minute substitution, the 31-year-old is given a standing ovation by around 15,000 fans at Duisburg's Wedaustadion and is now talking to a reporter on the edge of the pitch with a blanket...
