The contract with the Schaffhausen coach will be signed on Monday. Yakin will be presented in the afternoon, provided that an agreement is reached as expected. But the basic decision has been made: the Swiss Football Association is in agreement on the basics.
One of three candidates
Yakin was one of three candidates who came to the Swiss Football Association last week.
