The surprise is great when FC Basel announce their latest changes on Monday. With David Degen, Ursula, Andreas Rey and Dan Holzmann, the club is run by only four people.
At the same time, former President Bernard Hosler (58) brought important reinforcements. Heusler is now available to the club as a consultant. And that’s free.
Heusler, who has linked the club’s championship titles with championship titles, puts his commitment to the club of his heart above economic interests. His company, HWH, which provides football advice, has nothing to do with his assistance to the FCB.
Degen was really tough on HWH . customers
A smart move by Basel President Degen to boost the credibility of his project in the city. However, in the past, Degen has not been shy about making tough decisions, including when it comes to HWH clients.
Heusler’s agency has brought coach Alex Frei (42) to FC Winterthur in the past. The tracks will be short if Degen does indeed consider Frey as Basel’s new head coach. The fact that coach Guillermo Abascal had to vacate the position in the summer is a done deal.
