What next for Valon Behrami?

Valon Behrami struggled to hold down a regular spot in Quique Sanchez Flores’ starting line-up this season but the Switzerland international has done just about enough to earn a place in their Euro 2016 squad. Behrami has made over 60 appearances for his country and has featured at four major tournaments since bursting onto the international stage in 2005.

Needs game time
However, his lack of form at club level and uncertain future will be of some concern to Swiss fans ahead of the tournament. Flores, who left Watford by mutual agreement at the end of the campaign, has dismissed Behrami in recent weeks and the 31-year-old’s last Premier League appearance came in the 3-1 defeat to West Ham back on April 20th.

Gokhen Inler was signed by Leicester City for a fee of £3 million back on August of 2015, unfortunately for the 31 year old player; he has never truly managed to secure a starting role spot in the Premier League club.

Ever since Inler joined the Premier League outfit, he has had to spend the majority of the season as an unused substitute. The Swiss player does not play any influential role in the club and this might become a problem for Gokhen Inler if he wants to perform for his national team.
