How to coach Gerardo Seoane celebrates mostly?
Comfortably and with enjoyment. You're older.
you seem to be more of a Rotweintyp and not a beer drinker...
... I'm also a Spaniard. (smiles) of course, We have initiated on our success, but all remained in the frame.
What are the moments of the YB-festivities have remained to you in your memory?
There comes to me a lot in the sense. The evening in the Stade de Suisse, as we were in front of the TV champion, then the scenes after the end of the game the next day in Zurich, as we had beaten the FCZ 1:0, and finally the return to Bern and the reception in the stadium with nearly 10'000 Fans. That was awesome.
you have already Had time to be able to this incredible season in peace to reflect?
We are not in a game of Champions, that was the result of a superior performance over several months. Seen in this way, we were able to prepare us, but if you will be the first-Time champion is the very special and beautiful. I think we will only realize in retrospect, played an exceptionally strong season.
your player of the season don't tell us, probably.
no, because for me there is no player of the season, but a team of the season. If you dominate in a League such, it is always the product of a community. It would be this great Team, individual footballer lift out. In addition, we have six more games to be best, it is also a matter of records, the 0:1 on Monday in new castle against Xamax has shown that we must always compete with the highest concentration.
another answer we did not expect. You are 40 years, still a young coach, but always remarkably calm and controlled. Do you recognize yourself in the portraits, which will be written about you?
I don't read everything that is published in the Newspapers and on the Internet. It is important to me that I stay as a coach to be authentic and factual in the previous. Sometimes it simmers in me, but I have to be on the side line as steady as possible and must not decide emotionally.
you are not going to be Fixed have been averse to and emotionally respond to it. Have you made a conscious decision to act as a Trainer to always be dominated?
I prepared for years on the coaching job. I have found that it is better to remain quiet and thought.
"By Ottmar Hitzfeld, one can learn a lot. He was calm and confident."
there is Probably a role model for you.
I'm a long time in football, follow the action intense, watch the big coach. Of course, there are role models, I am thinking of Ottmar Hitzfeld, has implemented the by way of example. He was taken and scores, he was always to the point. Coaches like him you can learn a lot. And it is especially noteworthy, as he didn't leave his line, even in difficult times.
"in The end we are measured by the success of what may, in part, be unfair."
Difficult phases you have not experienced yet. But it is in the Public domain as you, the temptation is definitely big, and sometimes a mask to attract...
... no, no, with acting, you won't get far. The would notice, just in front of the players. You are constantly together, and if you do not stay true to himself, is the fatal. May coach like Hitzfeld or I are not part of a challenge for you journalists, because we always deliver spectacular answers. But here, too, I think: It is better to be credible and not pretending. In the end we are measured on success, which can be partially unjust.
what do you mean?
Manchester City's coach Josep Guardiola said recently, it always go only to the title. You expect him to Triumph in the Champions League, but it was also important whether and how a team will develop and how you keep your Fans. That's exactly how I see it, too.
Well, Yes, Guardiola was hundreds of millions of Swiss francs in a new footballer to invest. With the mission to win the Champions League.
But there are six, seven other top teams at this Level, all but one will fail with this approach each year. This is thought to be superficial. First of all, it is for a coach to the development of the team, then the development of the footballer. And if that goes well, the results mostly automatically. But sometimes a player stands, most recently at Manchester City in injury time a couple of inches Offside, but the Team is all out. Then was all the work bad?
In contrast to Guardiola, they will lose in the summer, some of the regular players. How many outlets do you expect?
Steve von Bergen stop, Kevin Mbabu switches to Wolfsburg, Loris Benito has expressed the desire to go in a top League. Whether the one and the other happens, depends on many things. The transfer market has not yet come properly into gear, it will keep us busy for sure until the end of August.
Mbabu and Benito both of them set the outer defenders. In the squad Ulisses Garcia, the very versatile, the very talented Jordan Lotomba, the young Léo Send Seydoux and maybe Thorsten has not extended his contract yet. You want reinforcements on the defensive outside positions?
As you know, we give no Water. We analyze the squad and be ready, should we need to on more Disposals respond. With Fabian Lustenberger is an excellent footballer and a leader figure pushes already to us, he will take on a role similar to that of Bergen. And with Marvin Spielmann, a development capable offensive player who will make us with his qualities even more unpredictable.
In Central midfield is to be expected with the departure of the very sought-after Djibril Sow. In January, Sékou Sanogo went. YB is likely to get a robust player, such as Lucerne, This Ndenge, which can be represented in addition to Sandro Lauper, Michel Aebischer and Gianluca Gaudino physical elements.
That is a good idea. Believe me, we will have a strong Team. But it is still too early to talk specifically about the plans.
YB wants to be the number 1 in the country for young players. According to Spielmann of St. Gallen apply to the defensive player Silvan Hefti and, above all, the highly-talented wings Ruben Vargas of Lucerne as a candidate in Bern.
you Do? (laughs) The interesting foot baller.
they were in Lucerne, the big supporter of Vargas, who has 20 years of outstanding plants, and in the case of YB, the next step could be realized. You can hear the separation requirement of the FCL is very high.
I know Ruben Vargas, since he was 12 years old, I took him relatively early in the U-21 of Lucerne, because he is a great Talent. But we can't buy unlimited offensive players.
May leave Christian Fassnacht, or Roger Assalé YB, then Vargas as the polyvalent musician would be an ideal reinforcement.
That sounds exciting. As I said, we have such things to comment until the ink is in all contracts dry.
you yourself were recently in the case of several Bundesliga clubs, in conversation, in the case of Gladbach, Stuttgart, Wolfsburg, Schalke and Berlin in particular. How close they were to an exchange?
There were requests. I've decided over Easter, the Berlin-rumors were stronger, with a Statement of all doubts. I'm not staying with YB, the work is coming to an end, there is a break, we are facing a very interesting season and again we will have a hungry Team with an excellent mentality.
A Swiss coach receives each year the opportunity to go in the Bundesliga.
Clear. I am for the past eight years coach, but it is only since January of 2018 in the professional area. In the case of the Young Boys I have the perfect Job, I like a lot. Why should I give up? I'm only 40, and am hopefully still for a long time as a coach.
they are considered to be ambitious and determined. It continues for you so excellent, might have to face in the future, even larger Clubs.
I don't think. I deal with the reality. And for me: My way with YB. (Berner Zeitung)
