Suddenly there was calm around Danny Pucci. The man who has given countless interviews in the past few months, and written countless headlines, was David Deggin’s tough guy, not wanting to comment on Blake’s request. do not tremble, That hit the club on Monday afternoon. Nor to the shares he still owns.
Focusing on “so far”, as the 44-year-old from Zurich will soon leave the board of directors of FC Basel. Along with Johannes Barth, Reto Baumgartner, Marco Gadula, Sophie Herzog and coaching legend Christian Gross. As justification, the FCB wrote: “In the past few weeks and months, club management committees have shown that short decision-making paths and simple structures for effective operational management are needed. Hence the forces of both bodies will be united in the future.”
It’s a sentence reminiscent of the era under Bernhard Haussler. Under the long-standing FCB presidency, the tracks were short and few decision makers were on board. An advantage not to be underestimated in the fast-moving field of football. And a model that will also have a future under Degen’s leadership. Now only four people are sitting on the reins of power. Blick answers the most important questions about reorganization.
Who are the powerful people on the board of directors?
David Degen owns a majority of the shares at 40% and thus remains the Chairman of FC Basel. With Dan Holzman, he has a businessman on board who has been making his money from fruits and vegetables squeezed into capsules. The balance sheet once showed his assets at 325 million francs. With spouses Ursula Rey-Krayer and Andreas Rey, there are two other financially strong members of the board of directors.
Will Bernard Hussler return now?
No Chairman Emeritus supports FCB only in an advisory capacity. However, in public, the long time maker does not pay. Especially on the board of directors.
Is the club in a panic?
Yeah. Depleted reserves from the Heusler era, Basel ineligible for the European group stage, the club wrote a shocking loss despite Cabral and Zhegrova’s sales in the millions.
Does all this have an impact on the sports sector?
Yeah. As the distances will be shorter in the future, the FCB is basically in a better position. And with Heusler, the man standing for sporting success is back. And who are the alpha animals about Stocker, Frei and Xhaka they still know very well.
Pepe qualified for the Champions League five times under the leadership of Huesler. Will Degen eventually reach the honey pots?
