Personal statement on the departure of André Breitenreiter
Our manager André Breitenreiter has decided to accept an offer from Hoffenheim and depart from FC Zurich. Of course, we regret his departure. At the same time, we are also proud that André Breitenreiter is joining one of the Bundesliga’s top clubs.

We understand that André has now accepted Hoffenheim's offer to continue his managerial career in the Bundesliga. We can only congratulate him. The proverb "He came, he saw, and he conquered" matches his commitment at FC Zurich. We are all very grateful for everything André and his coaching staff have achieved at FC Zurich: it has made him a club legend.
From the bottom of our hearts, we wish André the best of luck and every success at Hoffenheim! We will keep in touch – both personally and emotionally!
