Cologne –

When 1. FC Köln sets off for training camp in Donaueschingen on July 16 (until July 25), another top talent from the club will be on board. Because in addition to the already established home grown-ups like Marvin Obuz (18) and Tim Lemperle (19), according to EXPRESS information, Philipp Wydra (18) also gets the chance to show himself to new coach Steffen Baumgart (49).

  • Philipp Wydra goes to the training camp of 1. FC Cologne
  • Steffen Baumgart wants to get an idea of ​​the top talent
  • Austrians should make a breakthrough at Geißbockheim

A second “Causa Wirtz” should be avoided at 1. FC Köln. Florian Wirtz (18) moved to Bayer Leverkusen for a low six-figure amount in January 2020 and is now worth around 50 million euros.

Philipp Wydra is considered to be one of the greatest talents at 1. FC Köln

That shouldn’t happen with Philipp Wydra, the Austrian (contract until 2022) should make his breakthrough at Geißbockheim. For this, the offensive player is now shown (professional) perspectives. Preparation can become his stage.

Because at Geißbockheim you think big things on Wydra, you see him in the internal talent ranking with Justin Diehl (16) far ahead. That should now pay off for the boy. After the A youth season was canceled in October due to Corona, Wydra was allowed to sniff men’s soccer air every now and then. He was not only used in the internal test match at the end of March, but was also part of the Cologne reserve team in the season’s final spurt.

Philipp Wydra, here in a duel with Kingsley Ehizibue, was used in the internal test match of 1. FC Cologne on March 25, 2021.

Against Wiedenbrück (1: 1), the Austrian U-national player even celebrated his starting XI debut for the U21s in the Regionalliga West on the penultimate matchday.

Now the playfully outstanding talent is to be carefully built up among the professionals. With the nomination for the training camp, he gets a credible perspective. New trainer Steffen Baumgart will take a close look at the aggressively variable left-footer.

The same should apply to Diehl and Georg Strauch (20), who are also allowed to present themselves in preparation.
