Radio Sport's Top 15 Sporting Moments returns for 2019 as Jason Pine counts down the biggest sports stories of the year.
For moment Number 11, Jason looks at Mark Rudan's tumultuous exit from the Wellington Phoenix at the beginning of the year. Following months of speculation - citing family as the main reason - Rudan finally confirmed he would be leaving the club one year early on his two year contract, to return home to Sydney.
Rather than return to Sydney, however, he took up the coaching role with Western United in Melbourne. Coupled with that, a raft of players followed Rudan, prompting some sharp and bitter reaction from the fans.
