Player of the month November: Kloten-Zurkirchen first knocked out, now in the high

“I struggled with the decision”

Sandro Zurkirchen (32) has come to terms with the fact that he had to make room for loan goalie Tim Wolf in the playoff final. His Finnish colleague Juha Metsola is now pushing him to perform well.

Swiss goalkeepers find it difficult to oust their foreign competitors and to make regular appearances. Whoever succeeds most often: Sandro Zurkirchen in Kloten. The 32-year-old has been between the posts in twelve games so far, his Finnish colleague Juha Metsola (33) in 16.

The fact that the newly promoted team leaves most of the games to its Swiss goalie may come as a surprise. On the one hand, because coach Jeff Tomlinson could only send out five foreign field players when Metsola was at the gang door until the injured US defender Jordan Schmaltz returned. And on the other hand, because you still have the last bitter playoffs from Zurkirchen.
