Fringer said at his unveiling yesterday that "I'm firmly convinced that I will justify the confidence placed in me." The new coach also went on to state that as a child he was a supporter of FC Zurich. "In the 1970's I was a regular attender of matches at FCZ. When I realized now that it was 40 years ago I attended matches in the Letzigrund, I was overcome with an immense joy. Although I have been in football a long time my support of FCZ is something very special to me. Today I am very happy and feel like a little child again."

That FCZ have opted for Rolf Fringer is no surprise given the impressive job he did at FC Luzern, turning them from a team that was certain to be relegated to a team qualifying for Europe in 18 months.
