Despite the excellent second half and victory in the Cup, Marcel Koller (58) is expected to leave FC Basel. The successor is Aarau coach Patrick Rahmen (50) in the starting blocks.
FC Basel are facing the big bang!
Although Marcel Koller has lost only one of the last 23 games, became the winner of the cup and still has a contract in place until June 2020, he will have to leave the club according to LOOKING information.
His successor is Patrick Rahmen. He recently lost promotion to the Super League with Aarau. Despite a 4-0 lead in the first round of Barrage, his team is spectacular at home in a penalty shoot-out against Xamax.
Show. Something that FCB bosses want for next season. Something you obviously do not trust Marcel Koller.
Also lack of identification with Basel is accused of Zurich. It is not by chance that the bosses want to install a man with a red-blue past and a Basler dialect. Board was in FCB both players and young coach. Among other things, he handled the U21 for almost four years.
Since then, he has been appreciated by FCB sports director Marco Streller. Even as Urs Fischer's successor was framed in the race for coaching, but he lost very little against Raphael Wicky.
Everything indicates that this works now. And frame will hold the first FCB training of the new season on June 18. Still, the FCB must dispute with the Aarau team the transfer fee, the board has a contract in Rüebliland until June 2020.
I bet the two parties will meet?
