Tuesday at Geissbockheim

Training with the ball

The 1. FC Köln players took part in two training sessions on Tuesday. Leonardo Bittencourt will receive a break on Wednesday.

The 1. FC Köln players were hard at work on Tuesday with two training sessions. In between the two sessions they also visited the funeral service of club legend Hans Schäfer. The complete report to the funeral service can be read here.

Leonardo Bittencourt was the lone exception to the two training sessions on Tuesday. Bittencourt sat out the afternoon session and will be given a pause on Wednesday. "It is nothing serious", said FC head coach Peter Stöger, who will not be taking any risks with the 23-year-old winger. On the plus side, Jhon Cordoba and Claudio Pizarro are making strides in training. "If the training week continues as it has thus far, they will both be options for Saturday," said Stöger.

Peter Stöger also gave his statement to club legend Hans Schäfer: "I had the honor of meeting him personally. In Austria, we consider him one of the biggest heroes in Germany. Even in difficult times he always gave us positive words. He was a great guy."
