It was the 69th minute in the Cornaredo when Renato Steffen (32) did not hesitate after a ricochet from FCB defender Vouilloz and fired the ball into the net with a beautiful volley to make it 2-0.

A dream goal that Nati’s wing celebrates for once, in contrast to their 1-0 winning goal in Basel at the beginning of February. First, Steffen forms a telephone receiver with his hand and then hits his forearms with the edges of his hand.

“Talk first before you put something like that out.”

Even though Steffen himself does not mention a name, it is clear that the chopping gesture is aimed at FCB boss David Degen (41). A few weeks ago he explained in the fan podcast “Yyneruggt”: “What Steffen earns in Lugano, you should have cut off both my hands so I could pick up the pen and sign.”

Degen’s statements were anything but well received by Steffen. “I always find it difficult when you talk about players who are not at the same club,” said the Lugano professional. “Maybe you should talk to someone before you put something like that out.”

Steffen waited for Degen’s call

It may be true that Steffen earns better in Lugano than in Basel. It is at least questionable whether a return to FCB actually failed due to financial circumstances. In an interview with the “Basellandschaftliche Zeitung” in the autumn of 2022, Steffen talked about his move to Ticino and explained: “David Degen has my number, he could also have called. Then the situation might have been different.”

Even after the recent victory over FCB, Steffen makes no secret of the importance his former club still has for him. “Most of the time I have always refrained from celebrating Basel. The fans should know what FCB means to me,” said the man from Aargau.

Lugano suddenly in the championship race

That is why it hurts Steffen that Basel is sliding further and further to the bottom of the table. After the fifth consecutive competition match without a win, the Barrage scenario is becoming increasingly realistic. ‘I hope they get out of there again. For me, FCB does not belong there,” said the 39-time international.

While FCB worries about staying in the league, Lugano suddenly dreams of the title. With their sixth win in a row, the team from Ticino not only set a new club record, but also temporarily reduced the gap with leader YB to three points. It’s possible that at some point Steffen will even be happy that David Degen never called him.
