Early Talks between Marco Schällibaum and the Montreal Impact: Potential Two-Year Extension

USA TODAY Sports

Swiss news site, 20 Minuten, talked to Marco Schällibaum to discuss the Montreal Impact mid-season status. The Swiss head coach also talked about an early negotiation with the club to renew his current contract for another 2 years.

Marco Schällibaum's hiring has been a success, so far, with the Montreal Impact as the club is reviewing the troops. Midway through the 2013 season, the Swiss head coach has made a name for himself as a tactician, a leader of men and a passionate fan of the game after all.

Schällibaum tells Swiss website , 20 Minuten, that negotiations are ongoing for a 2-year extension to his current contract.

With the recent success in MLS, it would make sense to hear about talks at this point of the season. The head coach might have the upper hand as he has proven his worth as a leader. But in the same time, his success is also the club's success, which validates the Impact's choice in the Swiss manager.

The Swiss coach shares his happiness about being with the club and in MLS, in his interview with 20 Minuten.

"My work here is very much appreciated"

When asked about his reputation as ''hot head'' in his homeland, the Swiss Volcano finds the tag unfair but admits that he is emotional on the bench. Without wanting to justify himself, he decides to be more selfish; in the sense, that he will spend less time worrying what other people think of him.

On a personal note, Marco Schällibaum appreciates being in Montreal and even prides himself in representing Switzerland abroad. But he misses his family that has not moved with him in Montreal.

Mount Royal Soccer reached out to the Montreal Impact and Marco Schällibaum's agent to comment on the news. When this article was published, no answer was received yet. Stay tuned for more.
