• Zaugg's modest playing career, highlighted by a five-year spell with Neuchâtel Xamax, was spent mostly as a holding midfielder although he later moved back into defence.

• Coached initially at amateur, regional and youth levels before finding a niche for himself as the assistant to a succession of Switzerland coaches − Roy Hodgson, Artur Jorge, Rolf Fringer and Gilbert Gress − between 1990 and 2000.

• Took sole command of the national team for four matches in a caretaker role between October 1999 and June 2000. Then took charge of Grasshoppers and led them to a record-extending 26th Swiss league title in his debut season as a senior club coach.

• Moved on to coach Luzern and Young Boys before taking sports director job at former club Xamax.

• Replaced Martin Andermatt as Liechtenstein coach in December 2006 and, after taking two points in attempting to make 2010 FIFA World Cup, extended his contract until the end of UEFA EURO 2012 qualifying.
