From the past. Today, it is a sad certainty, and the end of an Era. The Grasshopper Club, record master> in the Swiss Club- soccer
to say That former coaches, players, companions, and city politicians to the descent of GC:
Hanspeter Latour of the former GC coach
"I still can't believe that in the summer, a season without a GC in the top League will start. Since I am interested in football, was GC. The Grasshopper-Club embodied has always had a special Pride, he was surrounded by a special Aura. It is crucial now that people are set in the responsible functions, which embody the DNA of the Grasshopper-Club. I wouldn't put it past Ricardo Cabanas, to take a leading role. Christoph Spycher for YB and Andres Gerber in Thun show examples of how to work as head of sports today. Down-to-earth and team-oriented, with passion and peace. Both were as a footballer, in the case of GC, I know you, and I think the Cabanas would maintain such values."
"Watch it, went to the club in the last few years, both financially as well as sporty, always poor, was very hard for me. I had in the last few years, the feeling that it could happen soon. Now the descent is a fact. That hurts. Of course, it is for the Fans of difficult to stay in such a Moment is positive. In the Challenge, a GC needs the Fans but even more so. The aim must be to be in three years, a top team in the Super League."
Christian Constantin, the Sion President
"GC made a big mistake in the past: It destroyed his home, the hard tower, without the project for a new stadium. In the Letzigrund with FC Zurich at home. GC can't live in the house of the rival. I regret it, of course, that GC adopted from the Super League, but this is only of limited duration. If it is done correctly, the Comeback in a year, as of 2017, the FCZ has been able to. The Grasshoppers remain with your history of a great club."
Beat Schlatter comedian and FCZ-Fan
"I sincerely hope that GC is back in the Super League when the new stadium is. I've heard that could take up to ten years. That should be enough to a new team."
Ciriaco Sforza, former GC player and coach, now Coach at Wil
"great League of the descent of the GC is actually the only Challenge: she gets a draw, the championship is interesting. Me, it hurts when I watch what has become of the Club. The negative development, I will explain myself with a lack of discipline. This Problem has been dragging on for years. Again and again, Group of formations, constant change - this led to unrest. At some point the could no longer work. If you are cutting in the case of GC, the Situation honestly, you should have the descent a cleansing effect."
Heinrich schifferle League President
"The GC-descent is extremely regrettable. It is a loss for Swiss football, a loss to the Super League. If the record is relegated to the masters, not the outside perceptions. On the other hand, Servette rises, another tradition of the club, as a result, the damage is limited and I am looking forward to the representatives from Geneva. As the FCZ 2016 descent, I was sure, that he will return quickly. In the case of GC, I know the future is still to little to assess the Situation."
"I live now in the Ticino, but I've spent as a player, nine and a half years at GC. The Club means the world to me still much. The descent makes me sad - on the one hand. On the other hand, the Sport. You also have to be low. Not infrequently, I have learned in my life that I have learned from defeats more than Victories. Especially in the tough times, if you don't believe that, you need to keep together. The immediate re-promotion must be the goal, even if it is simple. GC belongs in the Super League."
Romano spadaro, a former GC President
"GC is not a Club. GC is an Institution. This is also why I am convinced that GC has the power and potential to recover. But, what is very crucial: The new President must now find smart staffing solutions for key positions. GC needs honest people, serving GC and not Vice versa. GC must not be instrumentalized, so that individual reach their personal goals."
Corinne mauch of Zurich city President
"In November 2018, both Zurich Clubs were: The city of Zurich's Voting public clearly stated its support for a new stadium, the Hardturm-Areal. Zurich finally receives a proper football stadium. That it doesn't work now with the League for GC, it's hard for all the GC Fans. But we look forward to The next season – and, hopefully, some of the direct re-promotion is at the door!"
Christoph Spycher former GC player, now head of sports at YB
"The descent is not good for the Swiss football. GC is a traditional club, the record master. And just in Switzerland, where the potential is not unlimited, and must have the football be in the interest of the big clubs take advantage of their potential and work well. In the case of GC, the circumstances with the crash of the hard tower have become fundamentally more difficult. Now is the time yet, in the recent past, the club sure not everything is done perfectly."
Boris Smiljanic former GC-professional
"The descent makes me sad. Now is the time to set the course for the direct re-promotion. The disappointment must as soon as possible from the minds displaced. It will be important to start with a broad chest and Victories in the Challenge League season."
Alain Geiger, former GC player and coach, now a Coach at Servette
"What happens now that sounds weird: GC in the Challenge League. It is the end result of a bad development in the past few years. There were too many changes, both in leadership as well as the coaches and players. So bitter is the Situation: GC may have been a blessing in disguise, and in a year's return, if the correct conclusions are drawn. With regard to the composition of the team, will not be one thing is important: that it consists only of young talents, but also from a couple of veterans. Since I'm talking from experience with Servette."
Filippo leutenegger, the responsible councillor for the School and sports Department in Zürichurce
"The descent is of course very unfortunate. After all, it is the record champion with a corresponding Tradition. But as we know, can be a descent a Chance. GC is rooted in the city and in the Canton as well and I'm sure the club will emerge stronger from the crisis."
Fredy Bickel, former Technical coordinator at GC until end of the season, sporting Director of Rapid Vienna
"With the descent happened, something I could never imagine: It can't be that GC descends. Even if it is the logical result of the last few years. GC will never die. There are too many people who own the Club at heart."
