The former New Zealand international was a prolific player in his playing days who represented club like Wolverhampton Wanderers during 1980s. The Kiwi defender represented New Zealand national football team in 61 matches as a football player. He took over the head coach role of New Zealand football team from 2005 to 2013 during which he successfully led the side to  FIFA World Cup 2010 in South Africa. Ricki Herbert set his first foot in Indian soil when he was appointed as the head coach of ISL based outfit Northeast United FC during the inaugural season of Indian Super League. However, Ricki Herbert failed to live up to his expectations as the Highlanders finished their inaugural season in the rock bottom position of the ISL table. After a disappointing stint in India, Herbert found his way back into international football when he was named the head coach of Papua New Guinea u23 national side. After his short spell with the Guinean team, Herbert took up the head coach role of Maldives National football team.
