De Karli hät si scho

We stood behind the gate on the old, two minutes, the sports field located in the village of Küsnacht on lake Zurich, we marveled at his parades and trembled, when he, the goalkeeper, and occasionally dribbled. And not far from us a woman was shaking, but next to her said only: "Kei Angscht, Mamme, de Karli hät si." Guschti Coarse it was, had to comfort his wife, Emma.

Karli, her son, stand in the gate 19, the FCK ascended and played in the 1. League. Karli was, in fact, been a striker, fast, linksfüssig and with a hard shot. However, because in a game, all the available goalkeeper had failed, he had to step in, the small Coarse, only 1.73 gross. His first set of gloves were those of a village police officers, white and woolly.

"Me hands en Goalie, me hands Goalie en, me hands de Karli Roughly in the Goal."

More than 20 years later, Emma is not more sass Coarse, more than 70 now, sometimes in large Letzigrund in the stands, they now trembled, for she knew, "De Karli hät si scho", mostly at least, she heard it, the spectators in the stadium sang at every game loud: "Me hands en Goalie, me hands en Goalie, me hands de Karli Roughly in the Goal." He was still Gus, but he was already a legend, an icon, the old man and the gate, about 40, and now 20 years in the FC Zürich , continues to be indispensable.

"I'm bi, but in the slow en old Cheib," he said, although themselves, but stop he did not want to had a lot of Fun and well he was still. His gait was slow, much of the bone, the left knee, "you," he said, hurt, "an all out cut, what was in it".

just a few months after his first Play with Küsnacht Edi Naegeli, the cheroot-Smoking President of FC Zurich, home to the family of Coarse was at the time, he wanted to Karli, this huge Talent, and transferred to the FC Küsnacht 20'000 Swiss francs. And then, in the autumn of 1967, everything went very quickly: in a European Cup game against FC Barcelona he came on as a substitute at half – time-and now the goalkeeper at FC Zurich Karl said Roughly.

Seven Times for Switzerland – only seven Times

He was five times champion, four times winners of the Cup, once again against Liverpool, in the semi-final of the European Cup of the most clubs, is a 20-coach, he had experienced at FC Zurich. "Some of the goalkeepers were contaminated because of me," he said, because they remained at FC Zurich behind him, always the number 2. Seven Times the team played Grossly in the national, only seven Times as many said, he would have far more play, but Switzerland had already in his time a lot of strong goalkeepers, prosperous, Kunz, Burgener, Berbig, or angel.

A goalkeeper, who is only 1.73 gross, today would be unthinkable at this level. But he was in the gate like a cat, with a huge leap in power, great reflexes with hands and feet, and sometimes, especially at the beginning of his career, later he became more careful. he offered also daring deposits, fooled, as the last man of the opposing striker with a cheeky Dribbling He otherwise is a rather calm and level-headed and, above all, comfortable type, as a goalkeeper, very loud, yelled at his teammates, couldn't even be angry, he only played, but lived.

he Got a goal, then he made cursing a dismissive motion with his hand, he felt it as an insult that he was defeated, his defender, who had perhaps been wrong and let him down, had to much to listen to, and then he took the Ball angrily from the network and continue to hit him, somewhere.

On the 12. In June 1987 he stood for the last Time for the FCZ in goal, with 41, at 515. Time in a championship game, with teammates who were not even born when he played for the first Time for Zurich. It was a Derby that FCZ lost on the old hard tower against GC 1:5. The first goal was scored Ciriaco Sforza, Born in 1970, against the Grosspapi, as the spectators shouted sometimes, in the goal, of Coarse, Born in 1946. It was a Friday, the next day he played again, when Küsnachter grümpel tournament, as a striker, of course, "20 years in the box enough," he said, into the goal to bring it to him.


He a few months later a relapse. 42 he was afterwards again in the gate, when FC Biel in the national League B, later, he was still playing company football and was at the ball game the club coach in the 3. League. The football triple he owes everything, he said, through him he had become a different person. He was a trained bricklayer, exercised this profession, as it is the FC of Zurich, undertook, for 600 francs plus 150 francs bonus per point in the month.

Charles Grob died last Saturday after a heart failure on the ICU of the triemli hospital. He was 72 years old. (Tages-Anzeiger)
