The captain is on the brink: Jonas Hector (31) from 1. FC Köln was missing at the start of the training week due to an infection.
Cologne – Not a good start to the week for him 1. FC Cologne. At the start of training, captain Jonas Hector (31) was missing on the pitch. The defensive player suffers from an infection.
Whether this is the same as a failure for the Bundesliga game on Friday at TSG Hoffenheim (8.30 p.m. / DAZN) is still open.
“I haven’t known him for a long time, I haven’t seen him often. That’s why we have to see how quickly he can get back to one hundred percent,” said coach Steffen Baumgart (49) to express.
In addition to Hector, FC are also worried about Ellyes Skhiri (26), who is returning from the international trip with an injury for the guest appearance in Hoffenheim.
Concern at 1. FC Köln: midfield engine Skhiri injured!
Dejan Ljubicic (24) could take over the Skhiri position in defensive midfield. But if Hector fails, there will be a lack of alternatives on the left-back position.
Because Noah Katterbach (20) is currently outside Steffen Baumgart, and Jannes Horn (24) only recently returned to training. It would be possible to use Kingsley Ehizibue (26) or Kingsley Schindler (28), both of whom die with their speed points.
Baumgart would certainly prefer Hector to return during the training week. So that the strong start to the season!
