Wellington Phoenix coach Ricki Herbert is remaining non-committal about what his long-term future with the club may involve, reports Radio Sport. Herbert signed a new deal at the Phoenix last week, with two years as head coach and a two year option on the ambiguous term of "footballing matters".

He says he doesn't have any idea what form that may take.

"A lot of people from a disappointing point of view have jumped the gun with no information about what that role might look like, it'll be certainly around developing the football club's succession planning, bringing people in, looking towards the future."

Herbert says it may mean he moves from a mainstream coaching position to a full time development role.
