Uli Forte Appointed FC Zurich Head Coach until the End of the Season
Following a meeting with the players‘ council yesterday, Sami Hyypiä stepped down from his position as head coach. FC Zurich has appointed Uli Forte as his successor. By mutual agreement, he will be in charge of the first team until the end of the current season, at which time Uli Forte and FC Zurich will decide on a possible extension of his engagement with the club.
Previously, Uli Forte was in charge of the Super League teams of FC St Gallen, Grasshopper Club and Young Boys Berne. FC Zurich hopes that the appointment of Uli Forte as head coach will give the team new impetus for the remaining four matches (championship and Swiss Cup).
