The Anti-braggart from the Bernese Oberland

the plan for The day on Wednesday looked like this: departure at 12.45 PM in Thun, eat at 16.30 in Giubiasco, the game in Lugano, around 20 PM, 3:1 victory, and then ride home. No days in the hotel, even arriving on the eve, "everything is normal". Marc Schneider Says. Anyone who keeps with him, you can feel how important to him it's just his normal, remain normal. He was so want to been brought up: "Not artificial, to be more than it actually is."

He doesn't like braggarts, and Blender. If so, is for him a "Plagööri". He is the pure counterpart, an Anti-braggart, he is the coach of the FC Thun . The Table Third.

Schneider is 38, and an employee of an Association, with the him much more than a contract of employment. He has played, he has ended his career, he is from here, grew up in Uetendorf, a village near Thun. Here, he also has a sport-in-chief and a President that don't work as cool supervisors – the exchange with Andres Gerber and Markus Lüthi goes beyond the Professional.

Just: What happens to the friendships, when the results of votes? If Gerber does not have to open up to his mate, that together more? "Then we are able to separate the Business from the Private", replies the Coach, "we knock ourselves constantly on each other's shoulders, but will also be discussing a very controversial issue."

"An apprenticeship is a pity tkeinem young footballer,"

His work as a Trainer, fits well to the story of the player Marc Schneider, which is not evident with sorcery,but with persistence and. At 16, he switches from Lerchenfeld to the then first division club Thun, is allowed to train under Andy Egli, and has yet to play in A-juniors, he made his debut but soon in the first team and on increases in the national League B. Priority the training. In Steffisburg, he completed a four-year apprenticeship as a mechanical draughtsman. To him, it would never come to mind, abort: "It has not hurt me. And a professional teaching hurts, even today, none of the boys footballer ."

at a very young age is Schneider a Fan of YB, Martin Weber is to be a role model. He also likes the AC Milan and in particular the Dutch group, with Marco van Basten, Frank Rijkaard and Ruud Gullit. At 22, he feels ready for a big step: He moves to FC Zurich and coach Georges Bregy, who knows him from Thun times. But half a year later, Schneider is lent back to the Bernese Oberland. And at the end of 2003, it looks like nothing more with him and the FCZ. Axel Thoma, former head of sports of Zurich, informs him that, for him, no use.

Shortly after Thoma released, Fredy Bickel, the successor to – and for cutter everything is different. Bickel says: "You stay." Schneider says: "Yes, if I get a fair Chance." Actually, he is the Thunern in the word, but now he needs to teach his coach Hanspeter Latour that he prefers to just FC Zürich. He remembers how he had to gather your courage take: "It was the hardest phone call of my life."

His wife is the "advocate for the player"

But his decision proves to be correct. Schneider is, he belongs as a defender for the team in 2005 under Lucien Favre, a Cup winner and 2006 as well as 2007 champion. He rises to the Captain. Iulian Filipescu, Romanian giant on the Defensive, describes Schneider with three adjectives: "Reliable, good, quiet." Bickel says: "The FCZ has used a type a with this clarity, honesty, down-to-earthness."

Via St. Gallen and YB leads, the trip back to Thun, in October 2012, concluded with the career. The coaching job attracts him, and he is given the Chance to learn in the club. He belongs to the staff of Urs Fischer, then an assistant, and retains this function under Ciriaco Sforza and Jeff Saibene. And, finally, himself-in-chief. He maintains dialogue with his players, he tries to understand the man behind it: "Everyone has his Worries, perhaps even some Fears. I need to feel what's going on in the Individual."

Sometimes, he discussed the home with his wife Sandra, he is for over 20 years. He calls them "the lawyer of the player" and says, of course not in a derogatory way: "you open me with your Inputs for the eyes." According to it is rare, but when it is it once, "then everyone knows, at least Now something is definitely not good." He wants the boy especially one thing: that you think for yourself and act. He is disturbed in mind, when a 16-Year-old much remove, such as from a consultant: "One must not be surprised, if one is overwhelmed by the career and normal life, sometimes."

Klopp and Guardiola is impressed by cutter especially

Schneider without a Manager, without social media, he just doesn't want to "join every Hype". He reads a lot, he is watching what is happening in the world, he is occupied with the Great of his profession, Jürgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola to impress him. At the same time, he knows exactly where his place is – he feels, where he is well cared for. The resources are modest, Yes, "but everyone at our stops his pay right on time.We do not gnaw on the hunger cloth." And in General: "More money often means more problems."

For head of sports, Gerber has Schneider, "a high level of credibility," President Lüthi, the description is "authentic". And Fredy Bickel? "I perceived it as a very positive phenomenon in the sometimes not so beautiful world of Soccer."

Today the undisputed Leader YB comes to tuna, it is Derby-time to be a bit more viewers than would otherwise be expected in the Stockhorn Arena. Schneider would not know how the opponent from the new title would be. But a point for his team, he keeps, however, possible, "I'll just have to think of something".

One thing remains the same, but also this round, as always: simple, short preparation. "Everything as simple as possible", says Schneider. Tuna keeping normal.
