Sports director Steve von Bergen added: “The team’s performance has not met our expectations for some time. With the recent defeats in the championship and the cup, the hope that the situation in this situation will improve has diminished, although in my opinion we have tried everything to turn things around. Raphael Wicky and I put things together again on Sunday evening and realized that we had different approaches to how we could find our way out of this difficult situation. I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Raphael Wicky for the intensive and long, very successful collaboration over the last two years.”

Raphael Wicky says: “I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to be a YB coach and proud of the successes we have achieved together. I would like to thank everyone who has accompanied and supported me over the last two years, especially the team and the coaching staff as well as the fans who have always stood behind us and ensure that every YB home game is a highlight is. Despite the early separation, I will have very fond memories of my time at YB. I will never forget the emotions we experienced together. I wish the team and the club all the best for the future and keep my fingers crossed that the title will stay in Bern.”

Raphael Wicky, assistant coach Giuseppe Morello, will also be leaving YB with immediate effect.
