Paolo Tramezzani hopes to celebrate Thursday night against Lucerne his first victory since his return to the Tourbillon bench. A victory which would also be the first of the Valais club in 2020 …

In Basel, Sunday, Paolo Tramezzani’s game plan – “core” a point by setting up a bunker in front of the Valais cage – ideally worked for 85 minutes. But it will not have been useful in the end since Sion ended up cracking (2-0), giving the wrong to the ultra-defensive option advocated by the successor of Ricardo Dionisio in Valais.

With only one unit out of nine possible, that’s far from the point when you have to fight for survival in the Super League. These accounts, Christian Constantin necessarily made them and they are therefore negative. With an observation that has not changed. “We are still in a catastrophic rhythm. With the series of matches and what I see from the other teams too, we will be in the m … until the end. ”

The president of FC Sion however appreciated the state of mind of the group, the solidarity which emerges from it recently. “What is already getting better,” he confirms, “is the guys’ envy. In Basel, they fought a lot, with courage. Against Servette, we missed out on this story of a missed penalty early in the game. We must now translate this commitment into points, by being more concrete in terms of finish. ”

Despite the false start, the coach’s position is not in jeopardy and should not be threatened in the coming weeks to listen to his employer. “Paolo (editor’s note: Tramezzani) is my coach and will remain so until the end,” continues Constantin. The question of the coach is absolutely not a topic for discussion. Of course, the results have not yet followed but he has things in hand. ”

At the Tramezzani landfill, Sion worked a complicated schedule, with receptions from St. Gallen and Servette and a trip to Basel. Almost identical, the immediate follow-up, with Lucerne (this Thursday), St. Gallen and Basel in order, promises to be no less dangerous.

What if Paolo Tramezzani let go of his players a little bit?
