Markus Gisdol has been named the new FC Köln head coach after the dismissal of Achim Beierlorzer. The 50-year-old has signed a contract with the club until June 2021 and is only valid in the Bundesliga.
“Markus was one of the coaches on my list from the start, as someone who I completely trust to stabilse our team and to secure the necessary wins,” said Frank Aehlig
“Markus is an experienced coach and has proven in his previous clubs, that he can help a team in such a situation and give the team the correct impulse. He is stress-resistant and knows the ever-changing environment from his time in Hamburg. He has also shown his ability to develop teams and players in the first-team and youth academy.”
