Goalkeeper earthquake at 1. FC Köln


Share post:

The fact that Timo Horn starts the season as number one at 1. FC Köln seems to be a fact that is set in stone. After 200 Bundesliga games, the Effzeh veteran now finds himself in an unusual role.

Horn, who missed a few games at 1. FC Köln with a knee injury and an infection with the corona virus, will not return to the billy goats’ goal for the time being. This was confirmed by coach Steffen Baumgart on Friday at the press conference ahead of Cologne’s Bundesliga game at VfL Bochum.

“The decision has been made. I’ve already talked to Timo about it. There’s no such thing as an egg dance. Timo will be used in the friendlies. He fully accepts the situation and is the sportsman he’s always been. He sees it as Challenge. And it’s not like I took anything away from him,” said Baumgart.

Schwäbe new number one at 1. FC Köln

The new number one is Marvin Schwäbe. The former German U21 international has represented Horn in the past seven league games, Cologne have lost only two games and celebrated four wins. Schwäbe conceded eleven goals, four against FC Bayern alone.

In 2010, Horn advanced from youth to the pros at 1. FC Köln and never left the club. The native of Cologne is extremely popular with the fans. It remains to be seen how the followers will react to Baumgart’s decision.

Recently the “sports picture“that Horn will even turn his back on the cathedral city if he finds himself on the bench. A role as a substitute is “difficult to imagine”, it is said, and a farewell in winter cannot be ruled out.

The contract of the 28-year-old Olympic participant in Cologne ends in the summer of 2023. The Bundesliga winter transfer window closes on January 31. In an emergency, there would be a hurry.
