The ex-professional continues: “We consciously enter into this and the contractual arrangement can mean a risk if things go well. Likewise, in the event of failure, a clause can give us the opportunity to dismiss a coach perhaps without major damage. “

Fight for the core forces
But the foal team could not only change in the coaching position. Eberl: “At some point, we may lose two, three, four regular players, possibly all of the national team. The n we will not be able to afford to replace them one to one, but will make transfers like with Zakaria, Neuhaus or Xhaka. “

The former is the hottest change candidate, while central defender Elvedi is in FT-Interview last considered staying. “Not all three will leave us for sure”, emphasizes Eberl.
