Gustafsson quits Langnau and heads home

Langnau (in yellow) will have to do without their trainer from the end of the season

(Keystone Archive)

Langnau's hockey trainer Bengt-Ake Gustafsson is to leave at the end of the season, and is returning home to Sweden.

After two years in charge of the canton Bern club he has signed a three-year contract with the Swedish hockey side, Färjestad.

Gustafsson, a former NHL professional, played under the current Swiss trainer Ralph Krueger at the Austrian club Feldkirch.

The Swede is currently an assistant coach to the Swiss side, and no decision has been made as to whether he will continue to work alongside Krueger in this role.

Two favourites have already been tipped to replace Gustafsson at Langnau: his current assistant, Alfred Bohren, a former national under-18s coach, and Markus Graf, who coaches current B-league leader Biel.
