FC Köln head coach Markus Gisdol signs 3-year contract extension

FC Köln have announced the contract extension of head coach Markus Gisdol and assistant coach Frank Kaspari until 2023.

“Our goal is to establish FC in the Bundesliga. One of the decisive factors of that, is a team which work competently and trustingly together and behind our way. This applies to Markus, and he is an important part of that. He took charge of the team in an incredibly difficult situation last year,” said sporting director Horst Heldt.

“With all the challenges on the way to securing safety, he showed courage and leadership qualities – over and above, he managed to continue to develop our team, youngsters and regulars.”

Gisdol took charge from Achim Beierlorzer in 2019, coaching 23 games, winning eight, drawing five and losing 10.
