The 59-year-old Finn has been hired by the Germans as consultant to their national team coaching staff for the upcoming Worlds in Slovakia.

"With this measure we want to establish a system that is still rarely practiced in team sports. The comparison of internal and external perception should give us positive information on how to constantly improve and develop ourselves. Consulting in elite sports will become increasingly important internationally," DEB's team manager Stefan Schaidnagel explains.

Jalonen joined SC Bern as head coach in 2016 and just led them to their 16th Swiss Championship title in club history. The Finn still has a valid contract in Switzerland's capital city until 2020 and recently reaffirmed in an interview with the Neue Zürcher Zeitung that he intends to honor it.
