STeffen Baumgart embarrassed the Czech interpreter together with his robust enthusiasm. Mood in 1. FC Koln’s 4-2 win over FC Slovako in the Conference League was “wonderful,” the coach stated. The translator defined that there was no equal for this phrase in Czech and needed to snicker heartily.
But it wasn’t his first win at the European Cup that made Baumgart so pleased. Rather, it was the circumstances. that the coach, in contrast to in the 1-1 draw in Nice, was not required to sit down locked in the stands, however was allowed to roam the sidelines; And that the 47,700 spectators at the Cologne stadium celebrated a peaceable European Cup pageant with none clashes after the earlier week’s riots.
“We ought to make a vacation out of it”

Hector and Skiri on the bench
And there was little question when the Cologne group utterly misplaced their heads after main 2-0 at the break. Reinvigorated goalkeeper Marvin Schwab, who was allowed to captain for the first time, known as it a “little dropout”.

My job is to show unfinished gamers into completed gamers. For that additionally they want a printing expertise like this.”
Among different issues, the Austrian Lubicic, who scored 3: 2 and 4: 2 on Wednesday, made a wonderful improvement. Or “superior” improvement, as Baumgart calls it. The coach then stunned himself. “That’s not likely my manner of expressing myself.” At least it was translated into Czech. With Vyborny.
