The New Zealand All Whites would have a new manager in Fritz Schmid, according to reports. The Swiss tactician is set to take over the coaching role of the team. He is set to be announced as the man in charge on Friday. There were rumours online initially and then strong speculations when the man involved tweeted a goodbye message to Malaysia and started following New Zealand Football. He was the national technical director for Malaysia until late last year. He has also worked with the Austrian national team in the past as assistant coach. There are reports that his links with New Zealand Football technical director Andreas Heraf, whilst with the Austrian team, helped him get the nod for the New Zealand role.
