Cologne –

1. FC Köln and Max Meyer go their separate ways. Interim sports director Jörg Jakobs (50) and coach Steffen Baumgart (49) confirmed on Thursday (July 1st) that the ex-national player at Geißbockheim has no future.

  • Max Meyer does not play a role in the planning of 1. FC Köln
  • Steffen Baumgart preferred to keep Salih Özcan
  • 1. FC Köln has to downsize the XXL squad.

At the press conference at the start of the preparation, Jakobs stated in no uncertain terms: “Max Meyer does not appear in our sporting plans.”

No real surprise anymore, but now Meyers FC-Aus is officially sealed!

Max Meyer with no future at 1. FC Cologne

Jakobs’ predecessor Horst Heldt (51) signed the former Schalke player for half a year during the winter break. This expired on June 30th, from now on Meyer is officially without a club.

New coach Steffen Baumgart advocated another central midfielder: “I didn’t speak to Max personally. But I have expressed the wish to intensify the talks with Salih Özcan again. He is a Cologne boy. Sometimes it’s not a decision against one player, but for another. “

1. FC Köln has to downsize its squad

Especially since Baumgart emphasizes: “We always talk about the fact that we have 39 players in the squad, we have to act accordingly.” That means: Cologne’s XXL team has to shrink a lot before the league starts. There was simply no more space for supplementary player Meyer, who could not prevail in the second half of the season (only three times in the starting eleven).

But Baumgart also says: “I’m looking forward to all the players.” According to sports director Jakobs, there are currently no further departures before the start of training, so everyone can prove themselves first.

“There is a lot of quality in the squad. Now we have to get to a powerful size, “says Jakobs, who explains:” We’ll go to training with everyone first, there is no cross-off list. At the end of the day there are players with good and bad athletic prospects. We have to show these. The fact is that the squad has to and is getting smaller. That will probably go on until the last day of the transfer window. Specifically, we cannot report anything at the moment. “

Perseverance is required in the transfer market!
