As ever, there has been a large amount of changes at the club pre-season, although rather remarkably the manager was not one of them. Most of their pre-season departures were expected, and the players that have left should not be missed. Bamert’s departure was slightly surprising; he did a decent job at CB for them. Ndoye is a big loss; he was their best defensive player by far last season but Tramezzani seems to want a replacement that is more comfortable with the ball at their feet. Benito was another loss in defence, opting to return to Young Boys Bern - that’s half of their back four gone this season. Both of their most dangerous wide players - Wesley and Cipriano - have returned to their parent clubs, and neither can be replaced. The club are supposedly working on bringing them both back behind the scenes. Lindner was an excellent pre-season recruit for them. Erratic, but still their best GK in years. Poha is expected to be the deep-lying midfielder that Ndoye was never going to be able to be, and that Zuffi and Grgic have struggled to fill - both are far better further forward. With FC Sion though, little is guaranteed so always expect the unexpected. Their central midfield is well-stocked. As impressive as Stojilkovic has been up front, he’s literally their only goal-scorer, which is a mighty burden to place on his young shoulders - and it showed at times last season. Noufou was a wildcard recruit pre-season, presumably to play as his understudy; impossible to say how well he’ll do although FC Sion do have a penchant for finding gems. The problems are growing for this team though - width, attacking depth, and an unfamiliar defence could lead to a very slow start to their campaign. They’ve barely avoided relegation for several years in a row now. Big financial backing, lots of talented individuals, but seldom performs as a group. Little to no soul to the team. Likely to be in the relegation battle again, and will be relegated sooner or later unless a proper overhaul is completed, which would presumably only happen if owner Constantin left - and that doesn’t seem at all likely. If Wesley/Cipriano do not return, it’s quite possible that FC Sion will be relegated. Key players - Zuffi, Grgic, Stojilkovic, Lindner

Avoid relegation

Season Review
2020/2021

№9: Sion

Despite recording the fewest wins (8) in the entire top flight this season and sitting in last place with just 1 game of the regular season left Sion somehow survived. From very early on it was clear that the lack of creativity in midfield would cause problems and Sion were able to win just once in their opening 11 games (D5 D5). Still the amount of draws registered kept the team out of trouble up until Christmas, but in 2021 others started playing better while Sion continued to struggle. It must be said that injuries and COVID outbreaks also impacted the season a lot. Twice Sion had to quarantine the entire squad for 2 weeks, while for most of the games in 2021 a minimum of 6 players were out injured. Sion first collapsed in last place in February after 5-game winless run (D3 L2) and coach Grosso got sacked after the first weekend of March brought another defeat. Marco Walker took his place but he also struggled to improve things with only 1 win in his first 7 games in charge (D3 L3). This led to Sion entering the last round in last place but then 4:0 home win over Basel combined with defeat for Vaduz meant that White and Reds avoided direct relegation at the last possible minute. Inspired by that Sion went on to beat Thun 4:1 away in the first leg of the play-off for survival and despite 2:3 home loss in the return game the top flight status was protected. Walker is expected to restructure his squad in the summer as he hardly had time to do that since taking charge. Also he will have to re-evaluate the training practices as most of the injury issues occurred there.
