Declan Edge might not be New Zealand's best football coach, but he's definitely our most outspoken. He has fallen out with many at New Zealand Football and is seemingly always outside the tent pissing in. But is he worth the baggage?

By Bruce Holloway

Declan Edge is New Zealand's most unconventional, polarising, blunt, quirky, argumentative, reflective, demanding, controversial, self-confident, anti-establishment, critical, irascible, dyspeptic, witty, eloquent and driven football coach.

He's also impossible to ignore.


Edge, former All White and now director of football at Porirua-based Ole Football Academy, has produced 17 international players since 2012, had nine players sign overseas
