Rueda installed as Young Boys coach

Former Switzerland defender Martin Rueda has been unveiled as the new coach of BSC Young Boys, taking the post left vacant following the April departure of Christian Gross.

BSC Young Boys have filled the void left by Christian Gross's departure with the appointment of former Switzerland defender Martin Rueda.

The 49-year-old has been handed a one-year contract and will be charged with the task of mounting a challenge for the Swiss Super League title after Young Boys finished the 2011/12 season in third, 23 points behind champions FC Basel 1893. Joining Rueda as his assistant is Thomas Häberli, who spent nine years with the club as a player.

Capped five times by his country, Rueda has previously occupied coaching posts at FC Aarau, FC Wohlen and FC Winterthur while he leaves his current role at FC Lausanne-Sport after guiding the club to promotion in 2010/11.

Young Boys will enter the qualifying stages of next season's UEFA Europa League.
