The future of offensive player Ondrej Duda at 1. FC Köln looks questionable after the preliminary exclusion of team training. The club had confirmed the decision on the Sunday after the victory against Arminia Bielefeld (3-1).

Duda “put his interests on the team’s interests and will initially train individually,” it said, details about Dudas behavior became not known.

Coach Steffen Baumgart, however, discussed the measure in more detail in conversation with Kölner Zeitung. “I don’t want to see it for a week and don’t have it with the team,” Baumgart told the kölner Stadt-Anzeiger: “This decision does not just come, but it is the result of a development. There are of course always two perspectives with such things. “

He wanted to “hang the topic too high”, added Baumgart, in conversation with the EXPRESS he also made it clear: “The door for him is not closed. I don’t see it so dramatic. Something like that can happen in football.”

Duda (27) was not used in the victory against Bielefeld, who would continue to hope for the qualification for a European competition. A week earlier in the derby at Borussia Mönchengladbach (3-1), he was only substituted in the final phase. A total of Duda was on the pitch on 31 game days 29 times and has scored two goals so far.
