The Era of Del Curto has made in the ZSC Lions . On Monday they had "a little training camp," the 62-Year-old says, with Eistrainings morning and afternoon. Also on Tuesday is trained twice, in between, the new ZSC-Coach with some of the Zurich journalist sits at a table, drinking Apple juice and discussed his first experiences in his old hometown.
Since three weeks you're back coach, after a seven-week break.How's the difference in terms of tension?
As day and night. At the Moment I am constantly under power. I want to bring new things into it. I have to explain much. And of course, thoughts of shooting me through the head what we should work on. On Monday Pettersson, Cervenka and Wick were back and trained together on the Powerplay. Me so many variants floating suddenly. Beautiful! When I went home, I thought: Läck, if we can do that! I imagined what might be with this team. I was in seventh heaven.
What you dreamed of? From The Title?
no, I only see the game. How we could play. Intensity, creativity, and train on goal, Powerplay variants! But, we are in the middle of the season. Sometimes I wish it would be the 1. August, and we could start from the beginning. But I don't want to complain. I knew what I was letting myself in for.
languages from home –where do you live currently?
In the Hotel in Oerlikon. If I lived in Küsnacht, I would never, as long as I need here. When you come into the jam, you have Stress. I don't want to. Now I can walk to Training.
Were you surprised by the Hype they caused with their arrival?
Logically. But which is now fortunately over. It is never good when one is lifted into the sky. Then it goes down. The I never liked.
what was it Like for you, as your ZSC debut in Langnau a camera on you was directed? The Arno-Cam?
I didn't know it.
But after that, they learned it?
Yes. I think that's not good.
you have to be running.
I have not looked at it for me. (shakes his head)
you said you didn't want to change the ZSC at the beginning so much, but then it had become more and more. Is it become too much?
The will from the Club was that we increase the intensity. And then you have to adjust certain things. In the attack is triggering, in the Pressing. The player with the good, you want it too. But it is difficult for you, you have so many things in my head and not lose the Balance. For this purpose, the stroke of the battle is yet to come.
How well do you know the players already?
in the Meantime, I have a good feeling for you. I needed two, three weeks. If I now look at, I know immediately who he is, I know the name, the number. And I know a bit, what a guy he is.
this Is important?
Yes. So you know: I have to give a bit more Gas. I need to talk to anders. This is important to you. This feeling I have now. At the beginning I had no idea. Since I had to Orient myself first. It is a great team. Now we have to just stay tuned.
Are any of these ZSC Lions, a team that can play with your ice hockey ?
Yes. Yes, Yes, Yes.
It has already been criticized, this team was not too quiet, you have so much temper ...
(interrupts) ... but that's not every team. The man is not today? Quiet all today. If you stare the whole day on the phone, you're quiet. Or not? This has nothing to do with the ZSC.
It was also a chance to talk shop, to customize which players your ice hockey and what not. One, of the not was said, he yoke is Noreau. There are actually players that do not fit at all?
no. If you appeal Noreau: He is a good runner, he can play a short and a long Pass. He can read the game. He is offensively very strong. I don't think that there are not players that fit in at all. And even if, we must pull ourselves together. In Barcelona, you can switch the players so that it is true at every Position. And maybe even at Manchester United and Liverpool. But you can't make it to many places. If Noreau plays defensively stable as against Langnau, then he fits perfectly. Him some self-confidence. He is very sensitive.
"It is never good when one is lifted into the sky. Then it only goes further down."Arno Del Curto
What do you after a Match against Lausanne, as Noreau, the decisive gaffe happened?
Build up. Absolutely! Give strength, confidence, keep pushing, don't be of more help, that he makes it the next Time.
But in the case of a power striker like Chris Baltisberger you do not need to rise to the heart?
Is this a trick question? I have a very different game types. Chris is an important player for us, has the Power, the direction of the gate. But the others have all their qualities. You need everything.
you Have identified in Zürich your alpha wolfes? As in Davos Reto von Arx, Joe Marha or Sandro Rizzi?
Such types of, there are not so often. Or they are different. But Yes, of course I have found my Leader.
Would you like to stay longer with the ZSC Lions?
we Let the water of the Limmat down to run. Then we will see what will come of it. I hope that we can show in the next two, three weeks, the altered, intense, playful, modern, offensive and defensive strong hockey, that's what we want. Like Nashville, CSKA Moscow or the young Russians, who have played at the Lucerne Cup against Switzerland.
did you ever doubt that you can do with this Team in such a short time?
of Course it is complicated by the time factor. In the Games I sometimes have doubts, in the training. The understanding is getting better and better. Just yesterday, the team has me surprised. Your willingness pleases me very much.
you were about 22 years in the HCD. You have in the night, even dreamed of, you were in Davos, and when she woke up, they asked themselves: Where am I?
"I don't want to talk about the HCD. I'll just say that I was guilty."Arno Del Curto
How is it different to be in a large city Trainer than in the mountains?
Not much. Everything is just bigger here. The organization structures.
How well they work in these structures?
Well. Many doubted the, I. I said Yes, I should have said it in Davos change for a long time. But I don't want to talk about the HCD. I'll just say that I was guilty. Point. Here I can concentrate much more on hockey. That is a good thing.
Is the return to the ZSC, after 25 years, also a time travel into the past?
Logically. The people to come on the road to me and speak to me in 1992 (the victory over Lugano). I meet a lot of earlier. But also, when I was in Davos, I was once a week in Zurich. Many of my Zurich time have become friends. Even players from the team I had at that time. Hotz, Meier, Vollmer, and how they all hot. With Hotz, I traveled even once in the holidays.
Yes. We had it in the past not so good had to each other. But then I saw him in Davos in the Restaurant, as he was alone at a table eating. I said: "Adi, you can still come to us!" And he actually came. We ate together, with colleagues, and later friends, we were.
How often are you in downtown?
Once. I have at the Moment really don't have time. (Tages-Anzeiger)
