Preparation for the final game of the season

The Day at FC: Start of training

On Tuesday, the 1. FC Köln players started the training week. Anthony Modeste brought out his goal celebration following the session.

Stretches, warm-up and at the end, it was time to work with the ball. The players began preparation for the final game of the season on Tuesday afternoon. On Sunday, 1. FC Köln face 1. FC Magdeburg. In the final game of the season, André Pawlak will be without Jhon Cordoba, Dominick Drexler and Jorge Meré.

While Cordoba is out due to his red card, Drexler and Meré both picked up their fifth yellow cards of the season on Sunday. “Due to that, we’ve got to take three players with us, who weren’t in the squad before,” said André Pawlak on Tuesday. “We’ve already spoken internally, that we want to show what we can do one more time. We started that against Regensburg and we want to pick up where we left off in Magdeburg.”

Frederik Sörensen was absent from training on Tuesday. He and his girlfriend have become parents thanks to their new-born kids. On Thursday, the Bianca and Diana arrived into the world. 

At the end of the session, Jonas Hector met a young FC fan. The eight-year-old Lio won the joint giveaway between the Kids Club and the Effzeh-Böcke in order to win Jonas Hector’s captain’s armband.

Anthony Modeste also met up with an FC fan after training – or to better put it, a very prominent FC fan. England’s striker, Ellen White was at Geißbockheim. The 30-year-old celebrates as Tony does, and both came together to do just that after training.
