It’s done, the Swiss have found their new coach. The Nati finally gave its keys to one of its former internationals, Murat Yakin.
The Swiss Football Association has found the worthy successor of Vladimir Petkovic, who left for the Girondins de Bordeaux after eliminating the French team at Euro 2020. After having wiped out the refusals of French coaches such as Arsène Wenger, Laurent Blanc or Lucien Favre, the Nati finally set its sights on its former defender Murat Yakin.
The Swiss tactician of Turkish origin retains a certain prestige from his years as a coach. As a reminder, Yakin was twice elected best coach of Switzerland in 2013 and in 2017 with FC Basel the first time and with FC Schaffhausen the second time. A club with which Yakin was supposed to start the new season before he was called up by the national team.
In an official press release, the new Swiss coach says he is very happy to start this new adventure: “ The Nati was already a matter of the heart for me as a player. It is a great honor and a pleasure to be able to represent our country as a coach. I have no doubts that we will qualify for the World Cup with this great team and that we will celebrate further successes. “
