On Monday afternoon, the Zurich football club published a statement on its website that left a huge question mark on ignorance. It says: “There is currently an email circulating accusing our U16 coach Daniel Gijax of influencing the referee’s report after the FCZ U16 Cup semi-final match against Aargau.
According to the email, Gygax reportedly asked the referee to issue a yellow card to another FCZ player because he was going to be banned from the final. Our coaching staff vehemently rejects the allegation that it affected the referee’s determination.
The email, also obtained by Blick, came from an unknown sender. The stumbling block is the U-16 Cup semi-final match on March 16 between FC Zurich and Aargau: after a foul, the referee showed the FCZ U-16 team a yellow card. This is evidenced by Blake’s testimonies and video sequences.
Because this is the MP’s second warning in the current competition, he will be stopped in the final. But in the official match report of the Swiss Football Association (SFV), the yellow card was assigned to another player. The author of the anonymous mail wrote that this happened due to the intervention of the FCZ coaching team.
There is no evidence that Gygax influenced judgment
The truth is: In the subsequent final match on April 14 between FCZ and Team Vaud Lausanne, the MP runs and thanks to an extra-time goal, wins with his team 2-1.
From what appears to be a mistake by the semi-final referee, someone now wants to turn former Natty star Daniel Gijax into a rope. from? And why? Not clear! The anonymous writer provides no evidence that Gygax influenced the ruling.
The NFL responded proactively with a statement and dismissed the allegations without first publishing the allegations on any medium. When asked by Blick, SFV wrote: “SFV was informed of these allegations on Monday and is currently clarifying the matter. We will inform you of any measures if action is needed.”
