After the lunch the world of FC Zurich looked so, how to you for years, always encountered. Thomas Bickel stood in front of the office and smoked. Stop. Two hours later, the Club has recognised an administrative earthquake and Bickel was going on his Job as head of sports.

The FCZ, the world had, in a Communiqué to know that he surrounded its operation duly. The previous U-21 coach Marinko Jurendic is from 1. August 2020 overall responsible head of sports and member of the Executive Committee. Also, a task is given to Heinz Moser. This is currently the Junior selections of the Swiss football Association (SFV) will be in August, his Job at the FCZ: head of training and development means.

And Thomas Bickel? Whose area of responsibility was defined “new” as it was in the message. You can’t translate the fact that Bickel works soon for the FCZ. But the fact is that he is still up to the end of the season for the transfer being responsible. Bickel would not comment on the decision.

Bickel had a good knack

This new orientation comes as a surprise and not announced so. Anyway, if you are from Bickel’s major work on the Transfers.

Bickel began his Job as head of sports 2016, and had immediately a good hand. One of his first Transfers Raphael Dwamena, this young, powerful striker from Ghana was. He came in early 2017 for a few hundred thousand francs from Austria and would have been able to move in the following summer for 15 million Swiss francs to Brighton. The Transfer would have covered the structural losses for years, it is Bickel’s would have been great indeed.

Just the English at Dwamena discovered a heart defect and suspended the previously announced Transfer. A year later, Dwamena joined for 7 million Swiss francs to Levante. Stephen Odey was able to sell Bickel profitable (for 4 million to Genk). Similar, one may expect also in the case of Aiyegun Tosin, the Bickel, in the autumn of 2019 has brought.

He should bring peace in the Club, and club earth. And he lived that.

It is the constant success

But there is also miss-handles goods. For example, Assan Ceesay who came in for considerably more than a Million francs from Lugano. Since the release of free Denis Popovic, earned a lot of money, but never was able to show was, that’s why. Both now play for the FCZ.

Bickel was appointed by the Canepas after the descent to the head of sports. He should bring peace in the Club and him to the earth. Bickel lived before the. He play went with the Tram to the home fell into disrepair, with little in the euphoria, and was the constant doubters and critics. He was the counterpart of the Impulsive, coach Magnin and President Canepa.

What was missing Bickel and the Association, was the constant athletic success and progress. And, apparently, has not helped him, that he a contract extension with Magnin has been highly critical. The President couple had been divided over the work of Bickel. Now, the a half. It is Bickel’s work was not half.
