David Wagner is no longer the coach of Swiss football champions Young Boys Bern. The 50-year-old and his assistant, Christoph Buhler, have been released with immediate effect, according to the club’s announcement on Monday. “In discussions with David Wagner, we came to the conclusion that the team needed new inspiration.
Former Schalke coach Wagner took the Young Boys to the starting point of the current season and led the club to the group stage of the Champions League. There, the Swiss caused a stir with a 2-1 win and 1-1 win over Manchester United, but the team was eventually eliminated.
In the championship, the reigning champions recently lost 0-1 to Servet Geneva, 2-2 to FC Lucerne, and 25 days later joined FC Basel in the table with the same number. In terms of points, President FC is already in second place, 15 points behind Zurich.
“Of course this is not what I wanted, but I understand that the sports management wants to give the team new impetus,” Wagner said. Former assistant coach Matteo Vanetta will oversee the team as interim coach.
