Training Has Started Again
FC Zurich started their preparation for the second half of the 2013/2014 season on Monday morning. Head coach Urs Meier got to welcome all the players who were expected for the first day of practice. The following players have not been able to join their teammates yet: Maurice Brunner, Amine Chermiti, Stefan Glarner, Alain Nef (all injured), Loris Benito, Philippe Koch, Raphael Koch (all in military service), Pedro Henrique (will only join the team on Monday afternoon due to travel times) and Yassine Chikhaoui, who’s currently undergoing medical tests in Tunisia and will be back with the team at the beginning of FC Zurich’s training camp at the latest.
New signing Armando Sadiku (from FC Lugano) completed his first practice with his new club. "Armando has made a name for himself as the top scorer of the Swiss Challenge League, now he’ll need to prove his abilities also in the Super League. We’re convinced of his qualities and are pleased to have another striker at our disposal – which will hopefully help us increase our efficiency", says FC Zurich head coach Urs Meier about the newly signed forward with the number 11.
Besides, central defender Nico Elvedi has also joined FC Zurich’s first team from the club’s U21.
