Swiss hopes on Barnetta’s shoulders

As Bayer 04 Leverkusen climb the Bundesliga and advance in the UEFA Cup it is not just supporters of the German club enjoying the moment. Switzerland fans too have had reason to celebrate their success, as it is due in no small part to their very own Tranquillo Barnetta.

Barnetta has taken on a leading role for club and country. His side are in the hunt for a place in the UEFA Champions League next season and are through to the UEFA Cup quarter-finals.

“We’re playing an attractive and attacking game and we know we’re always capable of scoring, when you are successful, running is easier. You do the extra miles and everyone at Leverkusen works for their team-mates.”

The pressure is now on Switzerland to produce performances to match expectations and despite recent results Barnetta is convinced they can. “There is definitely a new confidence within the Switzerland side. We want to win all the time and we know we’re capable of doing so. Many of us play abroad and have gained confidence. It doesn’t even matter if we’re playing the Netherlands or Germany, we are confident.”
