ERMINIO PISERCHIA AND JÖRG STIEL NEW AT GC

Grasshopper Club Zürich is pleased to introduce two new faces in the GC staff. Erminio Piserchia will become assistant coach and Jörg Stiel will take over the position as goalkeeper coach.

Piserchia is a familiar face at GC: the Italian played for the club from 1983 to 1985, appearing in 19 competitive games. In total, Piserchia made 145 Super League appearances as a player for GC, FC St.Gallen 1879 and FC Lugano. After his active career, Piserchia remained in football as a coach, including eight years as assistant coach at BSC Young Boys. Most recently, he served as head coach of the Under-16s team at YB.

Jörg Stiel is taking over as goalkeeper coach. As a player, the Swiss completed 408 Super League and 89 Bundesliga games. He also played 21 times for the Swiss national team. Since his retirement, Stiel has held various positions as goalkeeper coach. Last January, he took over the position of goalkeeper-coach for the national team of Liechtenstein. Now he will be joining GC.

"We are pleased that we found two top coaches in Erminio and Jörg. It is important whenever possible to bring experience to GC especially if we are lucky to find staff that have had affiliation to the club. Both have great experience and fit our vision and ambitions very well." Seyi Olofinjana, technical director.

Grasshopper Club Zurich welcomes Erminio and Jörg to Zurich and looks forward to working with them.
