it had been expected, with some interest: The semi-annual balance sheet of FC Basel . Talk delivered in the last few weeks, yeah enough of that: players that complain about the work of the Trainer. A coach who complains about the state of fitness of his players. A sports Director, which is said that it can with the trainers.
And then? Then nothing happened on this Wednesday afternoon.... Or almost nothing. Roland Heri, previously Chief Operating Officer, will become the new CEO so Chief Executive Officer. He wants to devote himself in the future, "increasingly public Relations".
Else? All the love in the FCB. Sports Director, Marco Streller told about the relationship with coach Marcel Koller: "We have found us." Koller said about the relationship to the players: "The last two matches have shown enough that we go forward together." And Heri said about the President: "He is on the Deck, when the storm roars over the planks."
Well, in the case of the last statement, the question must be allowed what it takes exactly to the FCB President recognizes a storm. 19 points behind the Young Boys not enough, anyway, Bernhard Burgener was at the press conference not present. He leads from the second row. In addition, he was posing on the previous day with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge for photos, as the Basel announced that they shop for FC Bayern München in an IT solution.
The message to place the FCB a day later, without its President, fit into the merry Christmas: All is well here, we have no problems, everything's gonna be all fine in the new year. Well, Streller had to admit, he was "with 19 points behind YB" is not satisfied. But basically he had seen in the first half of the season, in addition to "Deep" also "a lot of heights". For example, that "many young players have taken over the responsibility".
The Basler have entered into a castle for peace. The question remains, how long the stock is.
