Coach Roussey leaves troubled Swiss club Sion
FC Sion coach Laurent Roussey has resigned, extending a season
of turmoil for the Swiss club that has been marred by off-field
Roussey tells Swiss daily Le Matin that he ”couldn’t continue
to work calmly like that,” citing problems with club president
Constantin was the driving force behind legal challenges to
FIFA, UEFA and Swiss football authorities, after FIFA had barred
the club from signing new players.
Sion was kicked out of UEFA’s Europa League and had 36 league
points deducted by the Swiss Football Association.
Roussey says he goes ”with a clear conscience,” leaving Sion
last in the nine-team league and facing a relegation playoff.
Sion won the Swiss Cup during his 15-month stay.
