Center forward Sebastian Andersson from Bundesliga club 1. FC Köln has to worry about the continuation of his career due to a knee injury.
“There is currently no new status, a return is not in sight. I’m relatively sure that it will be very difficult to see him on the pitch again,” said FC head coach Steffen Baumgart to “Express”. “I hope I’m wrong,” said the Cologne coach.
The Swede, who has been playing for Cologne since September 15, 2020, has not played a competitive game for a total of nine months. The 31-year-old opted for voluntary knee surgery in Copenhagen more than three months ago – not on the advice of his club.
“Seb wanted to do it, I personally wouldn’t have made that decision. I just hope he gets well and I’d be happy to see him here again,” said Baumgart.
Andersson, who scored eight goals in 47 competitive games for Cologne, still has a contract with the Rhinelanders until the end of the season.
