Switzerland's coach Ottmar Hitzfeld will remain at the helm of
the Swiss national team until July 2012, despite a disappointing
first round elimination at the World Cup.
Hitzfeld who renewed his contract with the Swiss federation
in August last year, was asked during the team's final press
conference if he would honour his contract despite rumours that
several German clubs were seeking his services.
"Of course I do want to stay. If the Swiss people want me to
stay, I'll stay," Hitzfeld said.
Switzerland's team spokesman Marco von Ah, said the Swiss
football association wanted the German-born coach to stay until
after the Euro 2012 Championship to be staged in Poland and
Switzerland is drawn in Group G in the qualifying round of
that tournament with their first fixture at home to England on
The other teams in the group are Bulgaria, Wales
and Montenegro in the group.
