no, Peter Zeidler has not exaggerated. Just raved about St. Gallen's coach of the "truly exceptional atmosphere in the Team". Now she is coming to the fore. 15 at his players to dive to the Training.
The temperatures are at the freezing point, but what does it matter? The laughter of the footballer on the reasons moss drowned out even the noise of the adjacent motorway.
The St. Gallen for your next task. You want to work in Thun their run to continue. In the last ten matches, they have picked up 25 points and press YB and Basel at the top. "Young and wild" reads Zeidler about his players. He finds: "That's right." In 14 of the 16 rounds of the Eastern Swiss were the youngest team in the League - in a 2:1 in Basel, the average age of 22.2 years.
in Sight of the height of flight was not. The Immigration? Unwanted, Reservists, Relegated. Zeidler admits that the Transfers "not everything with common sense and statistics", it was decided, but also with the belly. And he believes that he can say: "It fits." In fact, this FCSG is Itten more than the acclaimed success coach Zeidler and up-and-comer Cedric. It is a collective, characterized by harmony of a couple.
The leader figures: Hefti/Görtler
the average age was just. With 22 Captain Silvan Hefti is remarkably young for a leader. That's why he is reared occasionally from team-mates. And yet belongs to him. Not only his age, represents the current FC St. Gallen . As a former banking apprentice, he employs instruments with sustainable financial and acts in the conversation politely, reflected, sympathetic. These boys, they are more than just game, they also have quite a bit in the head.
it is A big help to him, Lukas Görtler, who joined in the summer from Utrecht to St. Gallen. "He takes the Captain a lot of pressure," says Zeidler. With 25 years of German is already one of the most Experienced, the boys look up to him. Maybe also because the midfielder was, after all, riding a Bundesliga game with Bayern Munich the best. Görtler belongs not to the gamers Council, yet he supports Hefti – for example when it comes to place is the concern of the team at the coach. In addition, Görtler was always a funny one-liner good, says Hefti: "The welds." For Zeidler Görtler is simply "the king of transfer".
The rule-breakers in the defense: Stergiou/Letard
Quiet, friendly, not inexperienced – these are the attributes for which Clubs to put together your interior defenders. Then comes the fact that one of the two with 1.80 meters body size is far away from the guard mass, there is a growing scepticism. Actually, FC St. Gallen, Yannis Letard, 21, and Leonidas Stergiou, 17 breaks the rules, all of them. And receives far less goals than YB.
Actually, the two for the Club philosophy. As a player, in any deep foreign leagues to be discovered are, on the one hand. How Letard, a young Frenchman, most recently with eels in the 4. German League descended. With him Zeidler came to his time in France: "I knew that he had with Julien Stéphan in Rennes, a good young coach." And then the young Eastern Swiss are there. How Stergiou.
In him, everything that makes the St. Gallen crystallized. The courage to put on a Teenager that is not only still the current body ideal. The view of the football box, if Stergiou in addition to his professional life, the KV and an internship at the office. The humility of the son of a Greek and a Serb appearance. And the consequence, players are not covered if you are feeding a weak day.
In Stergiou was in the first game against YB of the case, as he contributed to two goals, a debt. After that, many thoughts were in his head. But coach Zeidler sat down next to him. And Stergiou says: "This is the biggest vote of confidence you can give a coach."
The clock in the middle: Ruiz/Quintilla
Not only in the square's clock in the cabin Victor Ruiz is the tone. The Spaniard's Team-DJ, can often music in his country language. The 26-Year-old has been feeling a strong sense of rhythm, so at least it says compatriot and midfield partner Jordi Quintilla. Although, actually, everything, can Ruiz Zeidler finds: "As a player, he is complete."
he is Impressed by Ruiz's understanding of the game that has developed in the reserve team of FC Valencia: "He has the courage to leave his opponent in order to create outnumbered situations that we need for the immediate ball hunting."
Happy about this influx also Quintilla is. The former Junior of FC Barcelona, says Ruiz: "We have become good friends. He knows things about my life that very few people know." Quintilla is helping his country man, to cope with everyday life in Switzerland. Especially as a reliable Translator, after one and a half years, he already speaks good English, because he's missing from the language course, no lesson. To do this, Quintilla sports Sciences, studied this summer, sacrificed his holiday to finish the studies with a three-week internship in Barcelona.
Helpful in the settling in of the Super League is the dominant game style that the coach pretends to be. High Pressing and a lot of possession for the two from the Land of the Tiki-Taka like their footballing mother language. Zeidler laughs and says, "sports Director Alain Sutter has said, we now get only a Spaniard."
The Bromance in the storm: Babic/Demirovic
you have so totally other ways. Here's Boris Babic, 22, the Boy from Walenstadt, St. Gallen, Junior, the last season in Vaduz was wasting in the stands. There Ermedin Demirovic, the Hamburg-born Bosnians, playing with his 21 years at his sixth Club. And yet it was Bromance at first glance, as the two strikers met.
first of all, the common language help in addition to German and Babics offer, Demirovic adapt to. Then the awakening came in the first common game. Babic immediately shot through the head: "Cool! I understand me totally with him." And Demirovic says: "I've never played with someone like him, I know that no Matter what I do – he makes something that fits this."

The two are also next to the place so closely, that they called Jordi Quintilla nicknamed "the Golden couple". Common hair visits before each game included. And with some teasing does occur, if the flat countries Demirovic shoot again photos of Swiss mountains and of the churfirsten raised Babic, only the head can shake.
Together, the two have contributed so far, 13 goals and 5 Assists for St. Gallen's run. Whether the intimate friendship between men lasts longer than a season? Demirovic is on loan from Alaves, his transfer fee is likely to exceed the possibilities of Eastern Switzerland. One more reason to enjoy the flight, as long as it lasts.
Where Demirovic says: "All questions: what is kink?" To ask a rhetorical Pause: "But perhaps the even never?"
