Raeto Raffainer that they leave the Association directly in front of the home world Cup in 2020, appears strange. This is not an unhappy time?
From a personal point of view, you can see it in this way. But with regard to the work processes, it is not so, it is a fair point. What relates to the home world Cup in 2020, everything. What is, however, the subject is the preparation for the Olympic games-2022 in China, you must accept my successor. Also, the contract with national coach Patrick Fischer is due to expire after the home world Cup and you have to look into next fall with this theme. This is also a good time for my successor. In the end, however, it is already so that you can't choose the time when you receive an exciting offer.
you have been busy in the last few years, in order to unify the national teams in all age levels to develop a common strategy. But now that the harvest is imminent, they retreat. This is very special.
Then other crops can. The strategy, with the Coaches and staff, we are well positioned. I can pass a solid Foundation, which is also nice.
Still, there Were problems in the Association that you have to go?
no, in any way. On The Contrary. I was totally happy with my Job and also very motivated. I have hired never at a club. But then, this request from Davos came. A request I couldn't say no. A request, which is for me also a matter of the heart, since I have already played as a Junior for the HCD and later also in the training of the first team. I see the possibility in Davos in the next few years to build something.
The HCD is going through currently, but enormously difficult times. Would you take your Job just as well, if Davos descends?
I have given my commitment to the HC Davos and my contract with no clauses. I would take this Job, so also in the case of a descent.
coach Patrick Fischer is not likely to be on your disposal thrilled.
I was to him and to President Michael Rindlisbacher transparent from the very beginning, I informed you about the offer and also told them that I can imagine. Did you also know, when I met with the HCD. Fish knows me very well, he knows me, the Club Hockey so exciting and happy for me.
it is Still not exactly clear when you start your Job. Why?
I have a notice period of 6 months, have the Association, but that I will stay until my successor is well incorporated. By 1. October I must be in Davos, because from then on, it's about the team for the season 2020/2021. (Tages-Anzeiger.ch/Newsnet)
