Ice hockey star Raphael Diaz and his wife Myriam welcome a famous visitor to their new home: top chef Silvio Germann shows the couple a few things their new kitchen can do.
“It’s ‘classic chic’ style”, says Myriam Diaz, talking about her cream and white open-plan kitchen, dining and living area. Canadian-born Myriam, ice hockey star Raphael Diaz and their daughter Olivia have been in their semi-detached home with its attractive view of Baar and Zug for a month now. Myriam Diaz styled the interior of their family home, and “we chose the furniture together,” says her husband. Diaz says he doesn’t need much to feel at home. “For me, it’s enough for things to be going well for us as a couple and a family, then I feel good.” This seems to spill over into sport, too: Raphael Diaz, who played for several years in the USA and Canada, is having a fantastic season at EV Zug. He’ll be leaving his current club for Fribourg-Gottéron later this year, however. “My career is going in yet another direction, and I’m really looking forward to it,” Diaz says. “Obviously, I’m really pleased that Fribourg have put their faith in me.”
