Today, 21 May 2021, Bruno Berner and SC Kriens have parted company by mutual consent; bring to an end four memorable years for the club with the former Swiss international full-back in charge.
Bruno’s contract will not be renewed when it expires at the end of June 2021, at the end of a season which saw the 43-year-old secure a fourth consecutive season for SC Kriens in the Swiss Challenge League, the second tier of Swiss football.
After taking charge of SC Kriens, Berner oversaw an impressive third tier title in his first season as manager, impressively keeping the semi-professional outfit in the Swiss Challenge League for three seasons, despite working under a smaller budget than the rest of the division.
In addition, Bruno has led SC Kriens to the Swiss Cup quarter-finals in the past three seasons.
Speaking on his departure from the club, Berner said: “I would like to say thank you from the bottom of my heart for four successful years with SC Kriens. The great solidarity, particularly during difficult times, alongside the willingness of club management in president Werner Baumgartner and sports director Bruno Galliker, as well as the players and coaching staff were integral to our success.
“I would like to express my special thanks to the club’s sponsors, patrons, supporters and fans – and wish SC Kriens continued success for the future.”
SC Kriens sports director Bruno Galliker added: “We were able to experience great moments together on the path we took four years ago. With Bruno Berner, tose at the club achieved the goals set 100 per cent. Bruno has contributed a lot to the development of our club.”
