Rudan was thrown into the role only a few weeks into the season after the departure of Wally Savor.
A late season slump only halted Rudan?s Rockdale side who claimed the scalp of NSW Premier League Premiers Bonnyrigg White Eagles through a purple patch of form.
After having his first taste of coaching Rudan told Football NSW he was eager to continue.
“I thoroughly enjoyed myself,?? Rudan said.
“Rockdale is a fantastic club with fantastic people attached to it as well. In that respect I couldn?t have asked for more.
“I guess I am fortunate enough to do it as a full time role and anything I do I put everything into it.
“I think there are a lot of positives (to come out of this season), there?s also a couple of things that transpired that you learn from.
“But those things can only make you a better person and a better coach.
“All in all it was a fantastic experience.??
“There were a lot of positives to come out of (the season) including giving a lot of youngsters the opportunity to play week in week out.??
Rudan?s future has been the centre of speculation in the NSW Premier League of late with rumours persisting he will re-join former club Sydney United as a coach from next season.
The former defender admitted he had heard from Sydney United but no decision had been made yet.
“I?ll be making a decision sooner rather than later. Whether they come back to me it is totally up to them.”
