Anthony Hudson to be unveiled as NZ coach
New Zealand Football will unveil Anthony Hudson as the new All Whites coach on Tuesday.
NZF tonight announced that it would introduce Ricki Herbert's successor at a press conference in Auckland at 11am.
Hudson, 33, is that man after the Englishman resigned as coach of Bahrain.
Hudson's first assignment with the All Whites will be during the September 1-9 Fifa window.
The All Whites are booked in for a training camp at Qatar's cutting edge Aspire Academy ahead of the September 8 friendly against Uzbekistan in Tashkent.
Hudson has sounded out Herbert's assistant, Neil Emblen, and the pair are set to hold talks in Auckland about a potential combination.
Hudson emerged as NZF's preferred candidate from a shortlist also comprising Australians Frank Farina and Gary van Egmond. The son of former Chelsea star Alan, he is one of the world's youngest national team coaches and holds a UEFA Pro Licence.
He coached Bahrain to four wins, five draws and three losses since gaining a promotion to the senior side last August.
Hudson's coaching inspirations are Chelsea coach Jose Mourinho and Marseille manager Marcelo Bielsa and he spent time learning from both men last year.
