are you resigned at FC Sion. Also, in order for a dismissal to come before?
Who brings as a football coach in six Games only a point, living very dangerous, I know myself.. I as a President would be superior to me, too. But I am resigned for other reasons.
Because I was the coach of a group of players, not the coach of a team. Some of the footballer of the FC Sion have not met the mental requirements of a professional football player.
The sounds drastically. Who can possibly be meant?
It is not a concern, to call names. The players concerned know themselves. You know, finally, whether one has given anything or not. In the game and in Training.
you Would at any other Club than FC Sion with the same team is still in office?
The Situation in Sion, is not the Problem, not the environment, not the President, not the Club. The Problem players, which there was a lack of personality, of character goods. We had left no players with leadership qualities, or those that were brought for you to miss. It was a question of mentality.
So the Team is put together poorly?
If you want to form a team, you need Leadership. You have to get players who want to enter in this Region, for this Club to go there and feel at home. Not in Zurich, not in Geneva or elsewhere.
The sounds after many trips...
There was a group in the squad, was not ready to give it your all. I'll say no more.
The squad are after for good enough to have in Sion success?
The quality is there. But without head and without heart. The players who make something out of it that they are still in the 2. League were better than Silvan Hefti of St. Gallen. And what is it now?
Now, Sion, St. Gallen was overrun.
Layer. In this game, it was so clear what constitutes the correct attitude to work in football.
Sounds from the frustration of a failed teachers?
Maybe. The mentality has changed, not only in football. There are other methods to apply. When you criticize today's players, is for him already a disaster.
There is a lack of ability to take criticism?
Yes! And the willingness to come out of your comfort zone. Many Young dreams abroad before they have done something. You are in the youth squad and watch the big leagues on TV. I know what it takes in the League, to play in the Premier League.
So you had no credibility problem?
Apparently I was not credible enough.
In every team there are different characters, such more, such a need is less leadership. How about Sion?
Some have worked well! But from the other hand, it would have taken more. You will be very well paid at FC Sion, thanks to the President. But you can't just take the money and that's it.
you are not so kicked back, because you appreciate this selection of characters?
Yes. And because I can't change it. No one can do it now, even the President.
specifically: Has Zermatten, the Installation by Christian last week, according to the 1:1 against Servette something? Were they concentrated there?
no, not at all. I understand that something had to happen. Four Times the President spoke last week to the Team. Four Times! Nothing has changed. And I found this also makes sense, he wanted to help.
He paid the wages, he's entitled. By the way, he has done it to the 3:1 victory at Xamax, we are almost poking at the table top. He wanted to warn.
That is, a month ago, yet everything works. What happened since then? It is only the sufficiency of the player?
Yes. A month ago, this team has won games, because the setting has been worked moderately well. But if one wins, one thinks sometimes more of alone. But the never goes. I've tried to convey.
sometimes it Is not a pity that in this tradition-rich, passionate Club FC Sion sustained Work and Build is not possible?
This question you have to ask the President. My Problem is not. My Problem was: Why didn't work in the end, what worked at the beginning still? I think: not everyone can look at FC Sion, in good conscience, in the mirror. And some are perhaps paid too well.
what is next for you now?
I learn from this experience. You will always learn from difficult times. Also during my last Engagement in new castle (the contract was not renewed), I have learned a lot. If it runs easily and well, one learns nothing. Now I've made two good experiences, I am now well prepared for my next club.
And where you are looking for?
No idea, since I have not yet thought about it.
