After careful reflection of my private and professional situation, I have decided to return to Switzerland. I have therefore resigned from NZ Football effective 21 June 2019.
I am extremely grateful for my experience at the helm of the All Whites. I have met countless members of the New Zealand football community, who received me with great respect and true openmindedness.
I would like to thank all of them for their trust and support during my time at NZF. My special thanks goes to my coaching staff and, most of all, to our players: thank you for granting me the privilege of working with you.
It's been an exciting time and a true experience on culture and values. I will always remain a loyal supporter of the All Whites.
