Muntwiler was the highest appearance maker last season for the Residenzler, with 32 appearences out of a possible 35 in the league. The 30 year old has made 116 appearances overall for FC Vaduz since joining them in 2014. With being the highest appearance maker last season, he holds the record for the most appearances for an FC Vaduz player in the Swiss Super League.
Moreno Costanzo – Winger
Costanzo scored the most goals in the league for FC Vaduz last season, netting 6 goals. He’s also got European pedigree, scoring twice last season in the club’s Europa League run. Costanzo is also the vice-captain of the club.
