no, it will not work. So he grabs a player on the upper arm, pushing him a few meters further to the left, and declared with a powerful voice, why this Position in this Moment is the ideal. And if the boss rides correct screw, it will immediately shut down. Who is on the art of the IGP Arena, Wil, lawn, look, spellbound and listens attentively. Finally, the new Trainer is not just anyone, but Ciriaco Sforza .
At the 2. In March, he has become a 49, but his biography, the Younger, with whom he has to do now. You know: the player to The Sforza, has an impressive career behind him, the GC, Kaiserslautern, Bayern, Inter Milan, some of winning the title, 79 countries games, world Cup, EM. You also know that The coach Sforza brings experience from the Super League, he has worked in Lucerne, in GC and in tuna. And now that Sforza is your Coach.
"Playing football , boys!" he calls "plays very simple football." A ball relay race, a clean completion, and Sforza sees himself confirmed: "it works!" The Talent he has shown previously, he gives an encouraging slap on the back of the head.
A bit of it, as one out of the woodwork to be there showed up and happened to be in the FC Wil landed. In the Challenge League. In a club with an average attendance of 1167. Three and a half years, he has stayed with the business. At the beginning of April, he has reported back, and in the East of Switzerland on a contract until 2022 signed. It is for him, so he says, "the Start in my second career".
He did not want to predict Thun – and did it, but then
The first career in this profession ended in September 2015, as Sforza no longer felt that he was the head of the thing and had to act. In the summer, he had decided, after a successful season well with a 3rd place in the Challenge League to take a break, actually. And as tuna sporting Director Andres Gerber called to him, to make him the coach in the Bernese Oberland tasty, he said to himself: I will hold on to my Plan, I want a new Team. A conversation, he declined anyway. After two hours, Sforza ranged Gerber Hand – the cooperation was decided.
Today, Sforza says: "I don't know the best will, led me to give in. I never should have done." He would say to himself, to be ready, but he was not there. His wife was ill in the expectation of his father Fortunato difficult. The Situation overwhelmed Sforza, it was like being on an emotional roller coaster ride. Tuna and Sforza, this became a misunderstanding. The separation after a few weeks, he felt not as an insult, but as a salvation: "It is the sense was the most valuable decision for both sides."
The football was Sforza's life since his youth, but suddenly it lost its importance. "The priorities shifted," he says, "I would not have believed that it would come this far." Into the stadium he went to, games he looked only in television, but not with the intensity of earlier. Only after the death of his father on 4. In may 2017 there grew in him slowly again the desire for football: "I worked a long time with other things, but I thought in spite of everything never that my path as a coach is to an end."
Behind the facade is a sensitive man
Initially hidden, it could not go to Sforza as a Coach fast enough. He believed his rich experience as a professional, in foreign countries would be sufficient to be able to in a new role in the Super League and be successful start. As he entry in 2006 with 36 years at FC Luzern, he wore on game days on the sidelines with a penchant for nice suits with a tie and fashionable shoes, a man of the world. Sforza had the reputation of being aloof, Yes arrogant, especially when he pinched questions, use the eyes together, as if he wanted to say is that What this is?
But behind this façade is a sensitive, sometimes insecure person hiding. Only weaknesses not to admit, that was out of the question, especially in Public. He would have regarded as a personal defeat. Sforza did later in the case of GC, as he was always in control, like he can't Stress harm, no criticism, no power struggle. However, he suffered a massive.
As he had to go in 2012, it was – as later in Thun – a liberation. But the time had such an impact that he needed then psychological support. In an Interview with the "Tages-Anzeiger" he told at the beginning of 2015: "There were nights that I woke up bathed always 2 o'clock in sweat, again tears came, but again, I don't know why exactly. I can only speculate. Already with 16 years, I had become a professional, I lived only for the game of football, I was part of a business in which you have to be strong. I went in 2006 as a coach in the Super League, Yes, and then..."
Sforza was believed to have learned a lot, and one of his key insights is: "I don't want to lie to me." This also includes: not to rush blindly into any adventure, to be just forgotten. In Wil, he is not fit because he has desperately looked for a job, but because he is convinced: "It is." To put the infrastructure, the competence of his assistants, Daniel Hasler and goalie coach Stephan Lehmann, the representation of the Association, to the youth – "that is what counts for me. The League affiliation is secondary".
He wants to "avoid any unnecessary Stress,"
The residence he wants to relocate soon from Wohlen to Wil and "any unnecessary Stress to spare". At that time, as he commuted daily from the Aargau and Thun that cost him more substance than he thought. Currently, he is with his new team in a "learning phase".
As the Sforza in Wil the first Time in front of his players and on the training pitch commands were, it was for him, as he'd never been away. He says: "It's really good to me. I have a Topgefühl."
