Josh Holden shaped the National League as a player. The Canadian with his long dark hair looked wild, unpredictable, emotional and dangerous as a striker (Zug, Langnau, Fribourg). He gained a reputation as a hothead.

He changed sides four years ago and has been the assistant to head coach Dan Tangnes (No) at EVZ ever since. Holden as a coach? You can see him on the boards, sometimes serious, sometimes smiling – but always calm. The now short-haired 44-year-old admits he was initially a little afraid of not being able to control his emotions on the bench. But he can. “I had to create a new Josh Holden. It was a learning process.”
