Alain Nef appointed assistant manager of the first team
FC Zurich is pleased to announce that Alain Nef has been appointed second assistant manager of the first team with immediate effect. In addition, he continues in his part-time talent management and scouting position.
After 342 official matches for FC Zurich, one championship title and four Swiss Cup wins with the club, the 39-year-old ended his active career in the summer of 2019. Subsequently, the four-time Swiss international worked for FC Zurich in, among other roles, talent and team management as well as scouting. During the second half of the 2020/2021 season, Nef assumed the role as assistant manager of FC Zurich’s U18s.
The former defender is looking forward to his new role: "As a talent manager and most recently as assistant manager of the U18s, I closely accompanied various young talents and tried to help them develop both personally as well as regarding their footballing skills, and to introduce them to professional football. In my new role as second assistant manager of the first team, I would also like to convey to the players the values our club stands for."
We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Alain Nef for the first team and wish him every success in his new role.
