“I used to wear the number 11 as a kid and it fits to my position. The fact that it came up made me want to change,” said FC winger, Florian Kainz on his new number. Kainz will now wear the number 11 from now on. He takes over the number having wore 30 last season, with Kingsley Schindler giving up the number 11 after his loan to Hannover.
Ismail Jakobs (38) and Noah Katterbach (34) both have new numbers. Jakobs will take over the number 8 from Birger Verstraete (loaned to Royal Antwerp) and Katterbach has taken the available number 3.
