There was a sad moment a quarter hour before yesterday’s game against FC Sepic ended, when Dario Pfyl, the 35 years old midfielder was carried of the pitch after he was the victim of a rude foul. After the ended – the Gold Rushers won by 3-0 – we went to the medical center at Sutter’s Mill to see how Dario’s doing. He got some pain reliever and was waiting for further examinations. We took the chance a asked him some questions, after he agreed to answer them.
Dario, how do you feel? I mean the attack seemed very brutal.
Better since I got the medication, but before it was terrible! I really can’t understand how someone could go into a fight like this, especially when it’s ‘only’ a friendly. After the first examinations it looks like my ankle is very hard damaged and Franz told me that it would take four weeks at least.
This is a long time! How would you use it?
It is a long time, yes, and as we know I’m not a young lad anymore, therefore I have to be patient, ‘cause it maybe takes much longer than expected. I recently started with my education to become a coach. As long I’m not able to train or do the practical lessons I will use the time to learn the theoretical parts as much as possible.
Could to here you’ll not going to die because of boredom. What would be the stuff in that?
The theoretical stuff? It would be about physicals, tactics, food and things like this. There will be a part about how important the mental things are. How to work with and handle different types of characters is also included in the theoretical part of the education, but most things have to be done in action later. Loïc Genhart showed me already a lot of things since I joined the team, as everybody knew I would become the next coach of the Gold Rushers.
You have joined the team a bit more than a season ago; in the meantime you know how Loïc is working very well. Do you think you will do things different?
I like the way he is working very much. He’s expecting that every player adhere strictly to his orders, and if we followed his instructions he’s giving us some spare time in which we can play with the ball without pressure. Of course he’s still watching us and from time to time he’s picking someone out to give him a special lesson. I really think that it is a perfect way to keep the team between the stick and the carrot. He has also a very good hand when it comes to get the best out of the new talents joining the first squad.
Goin Reinhard and Joël Taillefer are the two actual newbie’s from RJs, what do you think about them?
They had a great time in the Academy, especially Joël! He has an average scoring rate of one goal per match, that’s great. Today they played their second game and even they have already noticed that it is another level, they’re doing their best to show their abilities, and both missed the score only close today. I’m sure if we give them enough time, and they stay long enough, they’ll be in the starting line-up sometime. All other outcomes from RJs (Arnold Meneske, Eugenio Cioccarelli, Malte Wehrda and Gaudenz Straub – are the names of them) were patient and finally took their chance. Can you imagine the Gold Rushers without them?
There will be missing something, for sure. Do you think that you will be missed the next few weeks?
Sure, there has to be one who’s responsible for the jokes! Seriously? No, I think the team is well formed and structured that their are others who can take my part. They are pro’s and Loïc will find the right players to earn the biggest possible success out of the upcoming league-games. And sooner or later we will play the Golden League again, I’m looking very much forward to give my come back in that competition.
Many thanks for taking the time and answering our questions. We wish you all the best and a fast recovery.
The next game is away against FC Lions Reutenen. It will be a hard game, because they are very strong, but we think Rünenberg is able to compete with them and maybe take at least one point.
