Focus is misplaced Recently, Trachsel was not too bad to respond to anonymous criticism in the forum of the largest Swiss unihockey magazine “unihockey.ch”. He offered the critics a meeting for a dinner to explain the philosophy and strategy of his club. Trachsel reads the forum articles, he`s having fun, “but some also hurt because the focus is wrong,” he says. The fact that Zug United`s teams play at the highest level in all youth categories, that U21 led 1-0 against the winner of the GC qualifier before the season ends in the semi-finals, and that the Swiss innersmanics invest a lot of money in young people, is often forgotten, including in the contributions of the forum. “In the meantime, my wife and daughter prevented me from continuing to read what is written,” Trachsel says with a laugh. Remo Manser is responsible for national teams at swiss unihockey. It is therefore important for him that The Swiss players can evolve. But he doesn`t accept the popular belief that foreign players stand in the way of the Swiss: “Reinforcement players like Joonas Pylsy or Tatu Vunen are great role models for our young players, not only for their playful class, but also for their attitude towards Unihockey,” explains Remo Manser. “You will enrich our league!” The other nl teams are already hailing the agreement today, including SV Wiler-Ersigen: “I am convinced that this agreement makes the Unihockey product in Switzerland more attractive and attractive to spectators, sponsors and media in the lobby and on-screen, as identification with high-level hockey becomes easier,” says President Reto Luginbahl.
Similarly, the Kloten-Dietlikon Jets see the deal as a chance that the hiring of foreign players will be made more selective in the future. We`re going to hire a new coach, that`s a fact. And we would like to keep Sasha Rhyner in the association. He is a well-known unihockey specialist and has been instrumental in Zug United`s success in recent years. But in recent months, the team has stagnated. We need some fresh wind. SV Wiler-Ersigen: New: Krister Savonen, Joonas Pylsy (both Classic/FIN) So far: Tatu Vunen (FIN), Michal Dudovic (SVK) “It is gratifying that almost all the NLA and NLB clubs sign the agreement. It shows great respect and consensus within the National League to defend the development of the sport,” said Andreas Landolt, president of the NL. One of the National League clubs that will not sign the document is Zug United. The president of Zug, Patrick Trachsel, justifies this decision by the fact that the agreement is legally unenforceable.
Indeed, the agreement is an agreement without a regulatory basis. In other words, it is not legally binding and the association should not expect consequences if it uses more foreigners.
