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.

Since Urs Fischer was sacked two names immediately appeared. That of Fringer and also former Young Boys trainer Vladimir Petković, who reportedly offered to do the job for no basic salary and would receive payment only for wins and points earned. 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.
