Köln –

1. FC Köln are worried about their captain Jonas Hector. The FC defender had to leave the field with a head injury in the 3-1 win against Arminia Bielefeld. “We have a duty of care towards our players,” said Thomas Kessler, Head of Licensing at FC: “Jonas complained of headaches and nausea.”

Hector collided with Bielefeld’s Alessandro Schöpf in the fourth minute, was treated for a long time in the dressing room and returned with a head bandage. After 29 minutes the game was over for him. “He felt uncomfortable. It’s a very, very deep wound,” reported coach Steffen Baumgart.

During the break in treatment, various examinations were carried out, which Hector passed, said Kessler: “It would be grossly negligent to let him out on the field without carrying out checks.” In the course of the game, however, Hector found that it couldn’t go any further. The captain is now to be further investigated.

And then we are where everyone wants to be. I feel like it’s deja vu, we’re doing well. The euphoria is there. Everything is going like 2017 right now. And we all know what happened back then.
