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.
