At 1. FC Köln, they are satisfied with the work of Markus Gisdol and Horst Heldt. As reported by the ‘Bild’, the Rhinelanders want to extend both the trainer and the managing director of sport at least until 2023 as soon as the class remains secure. Both contracts are currently dated to 2021.
In the event of non-relegation, the contract will automatically be extended to 2022. The Cologne bosses, however, apparently want to bring the expansion together regardless of this clause. The club is currently ranked eleventh in the table with 33 points. The change of coach to Gisdol quickly stabilized the Cologne team.
