After a few years of unexpected stability, Sion have gotten back to their old ways over the last couple of years, being rather inconsistent and frequently changing their managers. They spent the late stages of the previous season battling against the drop and finished the campaign with a caretaker coach in charge. Despite securing their safety, caretaker Christian Zermatten did not remain in charge, with Stephane Henchoz, in charge of their regional rivals Xamax in the second half of the previous season, taking over. Sion were widely seen as underachievers last time around and their controversial chairman Cristian Constantin has reportedly given Henchoz free reign to shape the squad the way he feels necessary. His first task was to conduct a clear-out and as many as seven players have left and unsurprisingly so, with the Sitteners having a bloated squad next time around. The Sitteners have made a habit out of signing players outside of Switzerland and it is no surprise that their summer signings Patrick Luan, Konan Oussou and Jean Ruiz are all complete unknowns at Super League level. They made two other signings later in the transfer window, with Michael Facchinetti being a well-known player in the Swiss top flight, while veteran Valon Behrami returns to Switzerland after more than 15 years and is certainly the biggest name among the summer arrivals. It needs to be noted that Sion had no real incentive to battle for Europe last time around, having been handed a two-year European ban by UEFA back in 2018. Their ban expires at the end of the upcoming campaign, so there will be no administrative obstacles for them to play in Europe next time around.

Target


Their goal will be to qualify for Europe. They are traditionally extremely difficult to predict and it all depends on how their reasonably talented playing squad will respond to Henchoz's ideas.

Season Review
2018/2019

№8: FC Sion

One of the stalwarts of the Super League, Sion will deliver turbulence more often than not and the Sitteners did not disappoint. They had another up-and-down campaign that saw them have two managerial changes and ultimately finish below where they were hoping to finish. The Sitteners did not struggle for goals early in the season despite losing top scorer Matheus Cunha last summer, but their overall form was not good enough and Maurizio Jacobacci was replaced by Murat Yakin as their manager. Their form initially improved under the former Basel boss, but they entered a particularly nasty spell during the spring season and Yakin was replaced by a caretaker team that managed to just stir the Sitteners clear of finishing inside the bottom two. Sion had a chance of finishing inside the top five until the very last round, but may have missed out on Europe even had they finished inside the European places, as they are currently under an UEFA ban that they now have no reason to appeal. What is certain is that the Sitteners are set to have a very busy summer. A lot of players are expected to both come and go, while Cristian Constantin will also have to name a new manager, with Stephane Henchoz and Gennaro Gattuso reportedly being the main candidates to take over.
