Znüni News – Wednesday 10 January

If you are into football, then you know that our local team the FC Luzern has had a rough time with the departure of their coach last week, but things are looking up as the new coach was announced yesterday and it is local boy Gerardo Seoane, who previously was training the under 21 team. The 39 year old has dual Spanish-Swiss nationality and lives in Rothenburg. Many hope that he will bring a winning wind to the team. We certainly look forward to enjoying going to some local football matches in the spring. Hopp Luzern!
