Interviews don't usually start that way. But in your case it is not a cliché: How do you do?
I'm good, fantastic even. I am since Monday back in the office. But I am aware that I have had big luck. And for this I am very grateful.
what are your memories of the accident in the night from Saturday to Sunday on may 19. October?
I have for a couple of hours of amnesia. I know how we got on at the Stade de Suisse in accordance with the game of YB against Xamax four of us in a Taxi and then below the ramparts in the city center exits. And the next thing I remember is Waking up in the hospital on Sunday morning.
they were Crossing the street of the Mat to protect in the direction of city centre, hit by a car and swept...
... Yes, there were some witnesses, and in the meantime I know pretty much exactly how it happened. We were on the road and saw a car that drove so fast, so they had plenty of time. From our dead angle must then be switched to a second car, the roadway and the other vehicle have become obsolete. Another YB-employee only touches on lightly, but I got it full.
It was said in some media, they were vortexed for 60 to 80 metres through the air.
This is completely exaggerated. I was fully caught, the and was eventually on the ground. I had many guardian angels.
For example, two Doctors who had observed the accident and immediately provide the necessary First aid actions in the way directed. You should have a lot of blood lost.
Exactly, that was, of course, enormous happiness that I know. I was also then treated in the island hospital on the monitoring station perfectly. It is clear to me that the thing can be otherwise had.
We assume that you have not used to 1.45 PM, rather on the pedestrian crossing and a couple of hours on the road were.
(smiles) Yes, it has been shown once again that it is not always reasonable to be impatient and to do something as quickly as possible. Alcohol has not led to an accident. I was a little cautious.
And the drivers to be driven fast.
not That I know from official sources. I can say nothing about it. And it also doesn't matter, because I will not be giving anyone else the blame for my accident. It does to me, for all sorry for what happened.
you suffered a traumatic brain injury, but were more severe injury. They were in danger of their lives?
I Assume. But I have actually suffered no gross injuries. There were operations on the forehead and at the elbow, two teeth were affected. On the front I have a small scar, but it's going really well. Bone fractures I have had, fortunately, never was the same this time. And in three weeks I may play soccer again, the knee is needed, but for the time being a little rest.
did you? already in contact with the two Doctors who treated her on the road, and the motorist
no, but I will thank you for sure at the Doctors. Moreover, it has been a pleasure to me how many people have written to me, or small gifts sent.
you are a successful and ambitious person who is from time to time in the fast Lane on the road. Consider your accident as a sign to leave it in part a little quieter?
no, I wouldn't say so. As I said: It doesn't hurt to sometimes be a little more patient. And I have now experienced firsthand how quickly life can be. But I was already a man who has reflected, it was always important to me to have a good Balance between Job and leisure. The beginning of the year I was a couple of weeks in new Zealand and Australia. Such things are not important, so that the Stress is too great.
How long have you stayed in hospital?
Seven days. I saw the victories of YB against Feyenoord Rotterdam and Thun, at the TV. Last week, I was already back home. And it was nice to have won, we are also in the Cup against Zurich. In addition, Kaiserslautern, Germany, my favorite team in Germany, won in the Cup, surprisingly, against Nuremberg after the penalty shoot-out.
YB running it, despite the 0:3 on Sunday at home in the League Servette again shiny. You would have thought that in 2019 will be in 2018 so successful?
I'll watch it after seasons. And it looks as if we can achieve this season, our high goals. I am very impressed with how our team deals with all the setbacks. We had a major personnel upheaval in the summer and have been using for months now so many injured players. And yet we are the same in all three competitions, encouraging on-the-go.
The Interview of Fredy Bickel in this newspaper a few weeks ago, caused in the case of YB for huge Trouble. They were also criticised by the former head of sports, sharp.
I would like to say nothing more.
The work goes on. They are not posted because still sick?
I feel good and have received from the Doctors green light. I was gone for two weeks, now I am looking forward to the work. And on Thursday I will be in Rotterdam, which is for YB in the Europa League is an important and big game against Feyenoord.
