Steffen Baumgart went as a striker in the offensive. “We are calling Europe, let’s go!”, Said the coach of the Football Bundesliga club 1. FC Cologne in front of the Brisant Derby at Borussia Mönchengladbach on Saturday (18:30 / SKY).
So far, the ex-attacker had retained in relation to international ambitions and let the FC fans be dreamed alone: “So I am, sometimes there are new tones. But not that we cry afterwards because it did not work.”
Because the first Bundesliga champion with 43 points after 29 matchdays can no longer, now the Rhine countries in the last five games of the season align the view of the European Cup.
“If nobody opened the barrel: clearly we want to come up this season as possible as possible. Of course I would like to play internationally next season. We would like to fulfill the fans this dream,” said Baumgart and rejected Verbal out of the window.
The 3: 2 against Mainz after a 0: 2 residue had again shown that the Cologne could also tear the back to the wall from the fire with his back to the wall this season. The FC coach therefore does not be afraid of the restarted Borussians who have brought ten points from the last four games: “They want to win, but we want that too! The intensity will be high.”
And Baumgart also spoke about his personal future. “My future is definitely the 1st FC Cologne, because I have another year contract,” joked the native Rostock. There are no concrete talks about a contract extension, but “there is no reason to become restless”.
The fact that both fan bearings will be at the Derby in Borussia Park is an additional motivation for Baumgart: “I have a grin on the face when the stadium is full.” Rivalry is alright, but this will be held on the square of the teams, “on the ranks should simply prevail good atmosphere”.
