Liechtenstein have appointed Hans-Peter Zaugg as the new coach of the national team, replacing Martin Andermatt who left to take charge of BSC Young Boys in October.

'First-class abilities'
"Our goals and demands are in accord with Bidu Zaugg's," said Liechtenstein Football Association president Reinhard Walser of the new 53-year-old coach, who will leave his current position as sporting director of Swiss side Neuchâtel Xamax FC having signed a three-year contract which comes into effect on 1 January. "Xamax's current sporting director has first-class tactical and educational abilities and has experience in top-level football as well as with junior teams."

Coaching experience
Zaugg served as the assistant coach to the Swiss national team for a number of years, working under Ulli Stielike, Roy Hodgson, Artur Jorge and Gilbert Gress and helping his country reach the 1994 FIFA World Cup finals and EURO '96™ before taking charge himself in 1999 and 2000. At club level, Zaugg has worked for Super League sides Grasshopper-Club, Young Boys and FC Luzern and was voted Switzerland's coach of the year in 2001.
