Schnell’s Lars Sall announced today that he intends to retire as coach at the end of the season. Sall was one of the first players to join Schnell after their promotion into Div V and his experience and talent as a player and a coach have helped ensure their survival at that level.
Recent issues with team spirit lead to discussions with Art Frisson about the future of the club, and it was agreed that a new face and new tactics would be required to help Schnell promote as soon as possible.
At the press conference Art stated “Lars has done a wonderful job here and the players, staff and the fans are all tremendously grateful. This season our series has been rated in the top 10 of 256 and his leadership and coaching skills have ensured our comfortable survival yet again. No one will ever forget his accomplishment in season 45 when he took as all the way to 2nd place.”
There was no announcement regarding who would replace Lars Sall although rumours abound that it may well be Jan Pindelak who will take the reins on a one or two season contract. Pindelak has been out of favour on the field recently, despite his obvious midfield talent there are many who have thought his contribution to other areas of the field have been lacking. Despite that his experience will be of great value to the team who almost to the man look up to him.
