Born in Austria and nicknamed Rudi, he was a successful Austrian international and in 1930 Herbert Chapman's Arsenal tried to sign him, but the Players Union and the Football League in England prevented him from doing so. He moved to France in 1933 to play for RC Paris alongside Auguste Jordan and later gained French nationality. Goalkeeper of the Austrian Wunderteam, he was also capped once for France. During the war, he served in the French military.
