Ludovic Magnin has been appointed coach of Altach, the current red lantern of the Austrian 1st division. The former Vaud international will take up his duties for the start of the second round.
Magnin (42) signed until the end of the 2022/23 season. He thus resumes service more than a year after his dismissal from FC Zurich in October 2020.
A team in difficulty
The club from Altach, a small town in Vorarlberg of 7000 inhabitants, has lost its last six Championship games and is 13 points behind 6th qualifying place for the final round.
This team has been playing in the Bundesliga since 2014/15, having even then competed in the qualifiers for the Europa League. Zurich’s Urs Schönenberger had briefly coached the team at the end of 2008.
