Swiss Young Boys champion fires coach David Wagner


BERN, Switzerland (AP) — Beating Manchester United in the Champions League proved to be the culmination of David Wagner’s nine months in training for Swiss champion Young Boys which ended on Monday. Wagner, a former United States international, was dismissed with the reigning four-time Swiss champion 15 points behind leaders Zurich. Young Boys sporting director Christoph Spycher said “we lost faith that we could turn things around”. Wagner previously coached Huddersfield and Schalke and, after being signed last June, quickly guided the Young Boys through three qualifying rounds to reach the Champions League group stage. An opening 2-1 home win against Man United in September, it was sealed by American striker Jordan Pefok’s stoppage-time goal. It was Young Boys’ only victory and a last place finish meant they were not transferred to the second-tier Europa League. The Young Boys say assistant coach Matteo Vanetta has been promoted to take charge of the team on an interim basis for the remainder of the season. ——— More AP football: and https://twitter.com/AP-Sports Copyright 2022 Associated Press.
