If he keeps working with the same humility, then we all trust in him to make the jump to the first-team,” said FC Managing Director, Horst Heldt.

“I am really pleased that my journey at FC continues. The perspective that those in charge showed me is a great challenge, and one that I am really excited about. It was decisive, that I know the clzb and the people well. Köln is a great city with great fans. I want to play as much as possible here in the coming years, keep developing myself and reach FC’s goals,” said Georg Strauch.
