Head Coach Sami Hyypiä Terminates Involvement with FC Zurich
This morning, head coach Sami Hyypiä requested the players’ council to ask the team for a vote of confidence. The players’ council then informed FC Zurich’s president of the outcome of this meeting. The team is aware that the players themselves are primarily responsible for the current situation. Nonetheless, they have come to the conclusion that a change of coach could provide new impetus. Therefore, it was mutually agreed to terminate Sami Hyypiä’s involvement with FC Zurich.
We regret this development, even more so since Sami Hyypiä has demonstrated a high level of professionalism and great commitment for FC Zurich.
As soon as his successor has been appointed, this will be communicated during a press conference. Until then, FC Zurich will not be answering any questions – many thanks for your understanding.
