Viktoria Köln: Andreas Rettig reprimands Kimmich for vaccination decision
The fact that Andreas Rettig does not hold back with his opinion was confirmed once again on Friday evening. During the half-time break of the third division game between Viktoria Köln and 1.FC Magdeburg, the former DFL boss also spoke about Joshua Kimmich, the German national player who doesn’t want to be vaccinated because he doesn’t trust the vaccines: “Joshua already has it made better decisions, ”remarked the 58-year-old, who took over as CEO of Viktoria on June 1st.
In the last few months Rettig had possibly tried like a prayer wheel to encourage the vaccine-weary part of the population to vaccinate, in the summer he and Die Viktoria had offered all interested citizens and fans a free prick with the Biontech vaccine.
Simon handle to 1-0
Almost 4,000 spectators were able to watch the match between Cologne and the leaders in the stadium. In the end, FC Viktoria had happily forced the Magdeburger to score 1-0 (1-0) and have been unbeaten for five games. After what felt like an eternity, the Höhenbergers managed to leave the agonizing relegation ranks; Olaf Janßen, Viktoria’s coach, was a happy coach and, on top of that, quite proud of his team: “We’re on the right track,” said the 55-year-old, delighted with the second victory in a row. “The boys threw themselves into every ball. So let’s get out of there safely. “
The fourth success of the season stood on shaky feet: Despite a red card against FCM defender Tobias Müller and an 87-minute excess, the hosts got into a swim in the second section. With a bit of luck in the match, Viktoria brought Simon Handle’s header (29th) over time.
