Herbert Prohaska (born 8 August 1955 in Vienna, Austria) is a retired Austrianfootball player. He ranks among Austria's greatest football players of all time. Prohaska is currently working as a football pundit for the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation (ORF). His nickname "Schneckerl", Viennese dialect for curly hair, derives from his curly haircut in his younger years. A talented, combative midfielder, Prohaska played as a deep-lying playmaker, known for his precision passing.
In 1989 Prohaska retired from playing. Shortly after his retirement he worked as a coach at Austria Vienna where he won two Austrian League titles and two Austrian Cups.
In 1993 he became manager of Austria's national soccer team, qualifying as group winners for the 1998 World Cup in France. In 1999 he resigned after a disastrous 9–0 defeat to Spain. From 1999 to 2000 he returned to managing Austria Vienna.
In November 2003, Prohaska was selected as the Golden Player of Austria by the Austrian Football Association as their most outstanding player of the past 50 years. In August 2004, he was voted the Austrian Footballer of the Century as the Austrian Football Association celebrated its 100th anniversary.
Working as a pundit for the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation ORF, Prohaska suggested at the 2006 World Cup that referee Graham Poll's famous yellow card blunder was a result of heavy alcohol consumption before the match.
