Bruckner calls it quits

Karel Bruckner, former coach of the Czech and Austrian national teams, said Wednesday he is retiring from the game.
"My career as head coach is ending," the 69-year-old Bruckner told Sport daily.
"This week I'll officially join the ranks of the retired. I will benefit from reductions on the railways and the tramways," joked Bruckner, who coached the Czechs from 2001-2008 and then the Austrians until the beginning of this month.
"After 37 years work my brain is completely impregnated with football," said Bruckner, who had intended to quit after Euro 2008 but changed his mind after the Czechs lost to Turkey in a thrilling encounter which left him wanting more.
"The end of that match was quite brutal - I wanted to chase off that memory so it would no longer haunt me," Bruckner told reporters.
