Wellington Phoenix coach Mark Rudan refuses to commit to second season

It was Valentine's Day on Thursday, but Wellington Phoenix coach Mark Rudan wasn't ready for commitment.

He wouldn't say he will be at the club next season, to see out the second year of his contract, nor would he say he won't be at Western Melbourne, the new franchise he has been linked in numerous reports.

Rudan respected that the questions had to be asked, but preferred to keep the focus on Friday night's game with Melbourne Victory at Eden Park in Auckland.
