Cologne –

The worry storm of 1. FC Köln: What is certain is that hardly anything is safe when it comes to attackers Anthony Modeste (33) and Sebastian Andersson (29). After his pubic bone inflammation, which radiated to his back and knees and which should now be overcome by the operation, the French announces his return. Will it be enough for the Bundesliga again after his unsuccessful loan to AS St. Etienne? He doesn’t know that himself.

  • With Anthony Modeste (33), the top earner returns to 1. FC Köln
  • Modeste wants to fulfill his contract with 1. FC Köln
  • Discussion with ex-coach Markus Gisdol

He is the top earner at 1. FC Köln (base salary around 3.5 million euros) – but Anthony Modeste has not been able to show his qualities in the Bundesliga since his return from China. Now he spoke about his emotional life in an interview with Bild.

Anthony Modeste: “I was with Markus Gisdol.”

Modest about …

… his chilled relationship with ex-coach Markus Gisdol: “He is no longer here, I am. The past has been sufficiently analyzed and understood. I’m not perfect and I know my limits and my strengths and I also know that the local coach will have an essential role in my game during the season. I was with him and we spoke to each other. Full of respect for one another. “

Markus Gisdol no longer had a use for Anthony Modeste. In the photo, the two talked during training on December 9, 2020.

… about his injury: “All of my problems were due to the same thing. For example, I had an operation on my groin and on my teeth almost at the same time in order to restore balance in my legs. I was frustrated but never doubted. And I will certainly not give up my studs. “

Anthony Modeste: “If I don’t feel fit enough, I’ll quit.”

… a possible summer change: “I want to reach my top level, be assertive and be part of FC. But I can’t decide that alone. “

… about a return to the old 25-goal form: “I have no time for doubt. If I don’t feel fit enough, I’ll stop. But if I did that with every difficulty, I would not have become a professional footballer. “

… about his connection contract with 1. FC Köln: “I feel at home in Germany and want to fulfill this contract.” (but)
