That there is the FC St. Gallen, weiss Victor Ruiz since the autumn of 2013. Since the Espen played in the Europa League in Valencia, and lost 1:5. And Ruiz will never forget the Team that crosses with the kickers from the Mestalla the Blades.

Eight years he kicked in the offspring of the Spanish big clubs at the side of Paco Alcacer and Juan Bernat. The a shot for Borussia Dortmund’s 18 goals this season. The other repeated, with Bayern four Championships, and now with Paris SG. “I appreciate both enormously, as a footballer, and as a people,” says Ruiz.

His footballing home, neither the Signal Iduna Park for the Parc des Princes – but the St. Gallen Kybunpark is. Ruiz: “So football is. I see St. Gallen nevertheless, as a great opportunity. Country, League, club level is good.” So far, he was only supplementary players to the back round opener against Zurich in the starting XI, came on as a substitute then yet. However, according to Alain Sutter thought he was already in anticipation for the new season – as a replacement for the divorced Vincent Sierro and Majeed Ashimeru.

Sutter: “Victor has the Spanish Element. It is free to move, guessed rooms, and has an incredibly good technique, he has an alert mind. And in spite of his stature (1.72 m, ed.) it is very robust.” Similar as Jordi Quintilla, who was at Barça large, and as a Revelation turned out to be.

Has discovered Sutter really during a Yoga trip, as it was already reported? Sutter answered in the negative. “I got a tip and flew to Majorca to watch him. Only that’s why I was there. Because of nothing else.” From whom the tip came, says the head of sports.

“luckily, no Mourinho-football”

Ruiz himself knows from Spain, where he was third after his training in Valencia in second, and fourth division Clubs played, the possession of the ball-the football – the counter-proposal to the unconditional vertical play of Peter Zeidler. Ruiz: “We play in a style more like in the Premier League – it goes back and forth. The main thing, it is offensive. It must not be in possession of the ball-football à la Guardiola. I’m just glad we play Defensive football as Teams of Jose Mourinho.”

Only a coach, he has forgiven the defensive game: Hector Cuper led Ruiz’ stem club Valencia in 2000 and 2001, with a pragmatic style to the Champions League final. “I could live with it,” says Ruiz, and laughs. In St. Gallen the relative calm like him, compared to the hustle and bustle of Valencia.

no longer has Alcacer and Bernat he has a lot of contact. In the title fight he was thrilled but with the Dortmund eagerly. “I do not begrudge him any success. Maybe it’ll work next year.”

For Ruiz about a, he would reach with the Espen, the Europa League and Valencia meet. Only a 1:5 would it not be absolutely.
