1. FC Köln can assume Modeste-Lleben

At the same time, the Cologne success coach made it clear: “If someone expects we to buy stars – these are our stars: young, hungry players who do not earn as much as at the end of their career.”

Baumgart with the Cologne squad planner is also faced with another important decision. According to the trainer, top scorer Anthony Modeste may be preserved. “We assume that Tony will stay.”

Özcan: The soft factors speak for the FC Cologne

The achievements of the past weeks – which, according to the coach Steffen Baumgart, to become a currently “not to be replaced” players, make sure that everyone wants to know when Salih Özcan with the 1st FC Cologne about a possible cooperation beyond the Contracting 2023 maintains. And that’s exactly what Özcan is currently not interested in the bean. He says. On the other hand: What else should he say?

A decision is definitely not like yet and this will not happen promptly. “There will be no decision before the end of the season. I have communicated it so that I still want to play the season and therefore have no head for other things,” Özcan said on Wednesday. And: “The negotiations run over the counselor. Personally, I want to be left in peace and complete the season as much as possible. Then we’ll look forward.”

Remains Özcan in his hometown?

If it was so far, he first wanted to search the conversation with Baumgart and then make his decision. What role of coaches (which in the summer insisted to keep Özcan) makes this statement of the Turkish national player clearly: “Through the coach, this season has come so about this season, he gave me self-confidence, that’s why I will be with him talk.”

It may prioritize the soft factors that speak for Cologne. Özcan is what you call a “real Kölschen Jung”, born in the district of Ehrenfeld, where he lives today, where he will be splelted by the guys who want to become like the son of Turkish immigrants: “For them I am felt one Identification figure. ” Whether he is also for the club, is in the stars.

The qualification for the European competition could give the matter additional Drive Pro Cologne. But here, too, there is no prognosis in terms of quality of Özcan: “With us in our team, this is not a topic of conversation at all. Of course, each player dreams of playing internationally. The guys who were not yet played by FC when the club has played internationally Do not know what to come to 1. ” But currently the focus on Mönchengladbach, then you want to turn the view from game to game, with this goal: “We want to bring the season to a good conclusion.”

Özcan in front of the derby against Gladbach: “We will meet on a bird troop”

The opponent of Saturday is an old acquaintance. Against Borussia he played as a teenager frequently, four times as a professional, not only Salih Özcan went from the square as a loser. “I hope my series belongs to Gladbach and I will also win the fifth game against you. I am very looking forward to the encounter, every player will enjoy.” He sees the Borussia “individually strongly occupied”, a team that should not be underestimated. He prophesiously: “We will meet a bird troop.” Unlike Mainz, you must immediately “bring the necessary intensity on the lawn.” If this is not obeyed, immensely threatens: “If we do not succeed, it will be hard to win a Bundesliga game.”

Unlike last Saturday, when he could not play from the beginning because of a disease, Özcan will start against Gladbach and form the double sect together with Ellyes Skhiri. And try to bring the performance that made him an irreplaceable tire over the past few weeks.


Baumgart makes Belass Europacup on 1 FC Cologne

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”.


Kessler: We can not close the eyes!

Thomas Kessler, the license player boss, announced: “This week we have to go more intensively into the analysis and look what it was in the end.” The ex-professional pointed out how important the tactical discipline is: “We learned on Saturday at its own body, what happens when we do not hold our plan.” The main focus is likely to be on the fact that the Cologne fabricated a lot of mistakes without enemy pressure and distress.

Maybe the mood played a role and the resulting expectation. Understandably the assessment of Steffen Baumgart, who did not want to share the euphoria in Mainz: “We like to win the victory, but he was happy. We are not allowed to close the eyes before the mistakes we did. We will not. We are clearly ran and watching we make it better next time. “

“There is no first eleven, there is a squad”

Kessler Syndrome in KSP?

On the win, the Cologne against Mainz was first, as after the 0: 2 and a sloping idea everything seemed lost. Not for the first time this season, the team lived as being switched. Salih Özcans Print, Dejan Ljubicics Zurability and Louis Schaubs TempoDribblings changed the game completely and finished what coach Steffen Baumgart repeatedly stressed this season: “There is no first eleven, there is a squad.” And that’s wide and works in times of increased diseases.

Kessler: “It abandoned us in the current season that every player burns on his use. The boys do not need a second start-up time, but are immediately there. They are never in a bad mood because they only switched us. The change have helped us. ” That should stay that way. However, it would be very much better in Cologne something more relaxed. Whether this just on Saturday at Derby in Mönchengladbach Hinhaut?
