Daniel Adamczyk signs until 2023

FC tie down goalkeeping talent

1. FC Köln continue to make use of the youth academy and have extended with goalkeeper Daniel Adamczyk until 2023 – with the option for a further year.

1. FC Köln have extended the contract with goalkeeping talent Daniel Adamczyk ahead of time. The winner of the German under-17 Championship from last season has earned a contract until 2023, with the option for a further season.

Just like Noah Katterbach, Robert Voloder and Tim Lemperle, Adamczyk is a Germany youth international who has played for the Germany under-15, 16s and 18s. The 17-year-old has been the first-choice goalkeeper for the under-19s this season, having kept 13 clean sheets in 20 appearances. The team coached by Stefan Ruthenbeck were top of the under-19 table and were well on their way to the German Championship finals.

“Daniel has, both in the under-17s as well as in the under-19s, taken on a very good development. He is extremely hard-working and focused. With his performances in the previous season, he played an important part in winning the German championship. Therefore, we brought him into the under-21s ahead of time and he’s been with us on a regular basis in first-team training. After the successful end to his studies, he can now fully concentrate on his path in the first-team, which we all fully trust him to do,” said goalkeeping coach Andreas Menger.

“I am very pleased, that FC has given me this perspective and have not just given me the chance to be a first-team player but instead helped me as well. Since I’ve been at the club, absolutely everyone has helped me and I had the chance very early on to get some experience with the first-team. Therefore, I feel great here,” said Daniel Adamczyk.

Daniel Adamczyk was born on 14th July 2002. The under-18 international joined 1. FC Köln in 2014 and in January last year, he was part of the Winter training camp squad in Mallorca.
