Cologne –

Steffen Baumgart (49) invites you to a big evening to get to know each other. One day before the official start of training (July 5, 2021), the new 1.FC Köln coach gathered the team, management, presidium and staff together for a barbecue.

This evening was particularly important to the new FC coach Baumgart. Before things get down to business on the lawn on Monday, Baumgart initially relied on team building.

A barbecue evening “so that guys have seen each other before they stand together on the training ground for the first time,” he said in advance.

Steffen Baumgart is focusing on team building with the barbecue evening at 1. FC Köln (July 4, 2021).

The FC convoy met on Sunday evening just before half past six and watched the cup draw in a large white tent in sixth place at Geißbockheim before the grill was lit.

In addition to many veterans, returnees such as Anthony Modeste (33) or Mark Uth (29) and farewell candidates such as Kingsley Schindler (27) or Niklas Hauptmann (25), there were also some new faces in the fun evening.

First and foremost the newcomers Marvin Schwänke (26), Timo Hübers (24) and Dejan Ljubicic (23) as well as the two new faces in the coaching team, René Wagner (32, assistant coach) and Uwe Gospodarek (47, goalkeeping coach).

They all used the opportunity to get to know their new teammates, the board, the presidium and the team behind the team.

As expected, Sebastiaan Bornauw (22) was also there. The blonde, who would like to take the next career step at VfL Wolfsburg, is on hold as long as the poker game between the two clubs remains as stuck as it was before. The Belgian will therefore also be part of the training session on Monday.
