Murat Yakin was appointed on Monday as the new boss of the Swiss

national football team, with an eye on greater success after their impressive run to the Euro 2020 quarter-finals, reports AFP. Yakin, 46, takes over from Vladimir Petkovic, who stepped down after seven years in charge of the ‘Nati’ to take over at French Ligue 1 team Bordeaux. Yakin, who played 49 times for Switzerland, leaves his post as the manager of Swiss second-tier side Schaffhausen. “Murat Yakin is the new coach of the Nati,” the Swiss Football Association (SFA) announced.
