Peter Stöger should be about to make a comeback at 1. FC Köln. The Austrian is already quite open about his talks with his ex-club.
A positive coronavirus test prevented personal conversations between Stöger and those responsible at 1. FC Cologne in Vienna. These have now been made up virtually.
“It was a very pleasant conversation,” says the Viennese after an appointment with Cologne’s managing directors Horst Heldt and Alexander Wehrle der picture. “We discussed fundamental things. Everything that relates to the sport, the squad and the coaching team. And also the goal setting. Being in the league is not a problem for me.”
Stöger announced his departure from Wiener Austria a few weeks ago and suggested a contract extension in Favoriten. The 55-year-old worked in Cologne between 2013 and 2017. After 168 games as head coach, Stöger can point to an average of 1.40.
In the Bundesliga, the traditional club is in 16th place (relegation place) – on a direct relegation rank, currently occupied by Hertha BSC, are only three points.
