Wolfgang Bosbach speaks about the crisis at 1. FC Cologne

In the surprising 1-0 defeat in the first leg last Wednesday evening, Bosbach suffered in front of the TV screen, he reported. But the CDU man also clearly criticized the team: “I missed a bit of the passion that I really want to win.”

CDU politician Wolfgang Bosbach spoke on Thursday (May 27) on Sky with presenter Albert Staudt about the crisis at 1. FC Cologne.

For the second leg on Saturday, Bosbach – like all FC supporters – is hoping for the relegation turnaround. But the celebrity fan was not really optimistic. “I can’t advise the team to play hara-kiri. It is good if you look for the offensive from a safe defense. But it’s like a common thread that runs through the season. We are far too harmless to attack. Sometimes I have the feeling that our storm is trying to win the Nobel Peace Prize. ”Rum!

Wolfgang Bosbach criticizes 1. FC Köln’s transfer policy

Then sports boss Horst Heldt (51) indirectly got his fat off. Because Bosbach then criticized the transfer policy of Cologne. “We bought three new strikers. Three. Of which not a single one could really prevail ”, the CDU politician alluded to the transfers of the permanently ailing Sebastian Andersson (29) and the two total flops Tolu Arokodare (20) and Emmanuel Dennis (23). “I’m not the only fan who wants to know: Why is that?” Said Bosbach.

Horst Heldt in the stadium

Sports boss Horst Heldt, here at the game against FC Schalke 04 on May 22nd, has come under fire at 1. FC Köln.

The long-time FC supporters are worried about the threat of falling into second class. “I’m definitely not one of those people who say a year in the second division would be good for 1. FC Köln. We’ve been to the second division enough times. It was always extremely difficult to assert oneself. It would also be an enormous financial drain, ”explained Wolfgang Bosbach.

Wolfgang Bosbach: “We have to turn every stone”

Bosbach’s clear demand: “Even if we prevail in the second leg in Kiel: It definitely can’t go on like this! We really have to turn every stone and ask ourselves: Are we really optimally positioned? We have to ask ourselves: What are other clubs doing better? It is right that we maintain tradition. I find that incredibly sympathetic. We rave about the greats who played at the club. But: Unfortunately, it is a thing of the past, albeit a glorious one. But there are no three points for that.

The CDU man followed up and explained visibly emotionally: “I also have to say, I can no longer hear it being said that Munich, Dortmund and Leverkusen have completely different financial options. All right. But I would like to have plausible explanations for why teams like Union Berlin or Mainz, which do not have the opportunities like 1. Cologne, have had a significantly better season. “

Wolfgang Bosbach praises new FC trainer Steffen Baumgart

When asked about the commitment of ex-Paderborn coach Steffen Baumgart (49) for the new season, Bosbach found positive words: “I almost said: He knows the second division,” he said at first, but then praised the new FC coach extensively: “He brings an incredible amount of impulsiveness and passion with him. He lives football. I trust him to give the team new impulses. “

Trainer Stefan Baumgart

Steffen Baumgart, here at the game against the Würzburger Kickers on January 23, is changing as coach from SC Paderborn to 1. FC Köln in the new season.

What does the noble fan hope for the return leg at Holstein Kiel? “That 1. FC Köln showed throughout the season: When it really mattered, the team was there.” Bosbach continues: “Saturday is a classic all-or-nothing game. If the team knows: If they missed this chance, there will be no second, then I hope that it will release forces that I did not see in the first leg. “

Bosbach also warns: “We shouldn’t believe that the fans, who are characterized by a high degree of ability to suffer, are constantly going through thick and thin with the club when one relegation after the other follows. At some point the enthusiasm will also subside. And hardly any other club lives from the emotionality of the fans like 1. FC Köln. I hope that we will live up to the expectations that the fans have on Saturday. “
