Just thought I'd add that in case you wanted to keep an eye on him as well.
you are stepping on a dangerous field

Germans are Germans, Austrian are Austrians and Swiss are Swiss.

you have Swiss French (Yannick Weber, Thibault Monnet), Swiss italians (Inti pestoni or Sandro Bertaggia) and Swiss Germans (Alain Berger, Nino, Bartschi, Streit or Hiller)

Group them by country

We love each other and have good neighborhood ties ... and language ties ... sure. And when in a foreign country, it is good to see a person speaking the same language. But We remain from different nations.
