At 1. FC Köln, the desired contract extension with captain Jonas Hector is not subject to any conditions. “Even if we waited a long time and got a replacement as a precaution, we always find a place for Jonas”, Managing Director Christian Keller assures the ‘Kölnische Rundschau’. Accordingly, there is no deadline for the 32-year-old.
Hector’s working paper ends after the current season. Recently, the ‘kicker’ reported on several offers from Major League Soccer. The left-back does not rule out a transfer to the USA in principle, but he does not want to change within Europe. “The directions are clear. We would like him to play at least one more season and he’s still thinking about it.”explains Keller.
