Gerhard Rodax (born 29 August 1965 in Tattendorf) is a former professional football player from Austria.

Club career[edit]

Rodax started his professional career at Admira Wacker and stayed with them for 7 years, becoming Austrian Football Bundesliga top goalscorer in 1990. That earned him a contract at Spanish side Atlético de Madrid, but he lasted only just over one season with them and returned to Austria to join Rapid Wien where he finished his career in 1993 at 28 years of age. In the 1995/1996 season he made a short comeback at Admira.

International career[edit]

He made his debut for Austria in 1985 and was a participant at the 1990 FIFA World Cup, where he scored in the 2–1 win over the USA in Florence.[1]

He won 20 international caps, scoring three goals. His last international was a May 1991 friendly match against Sweden.
