The footballing legend, Rudi Gutendorf who coached a world record 55 teams — including 18 national sides — has died at the age of 93.
Gutendorf coached Nepal in 1981 A.D.
His son Fabian told Germany's DPA news agency late on Saturday about his death.
Former FIFA chief Sepp Blatter once called him a football aid worker. With the support of the German government, he did indeed become a global soccer missionary, guiding some of the world's most humble national teams in Africa, Asia and the Pacific.
