Fck celebrates its

In the 4:1 (2:1) win against FC erzgebirge aue, seven players were on the pitch who are only 22 years old or younger. "The trainer shows us that we are on the right track," said one of the "young wild ones," 21-year-old denis linsmayer.

Together with steven zellner (21), linsmayer played a brilliantly functioning "double six" for 90 minutes. The 22-year-old hendrick zuck, along with alexander baumjohann (36./79.) and mohammadou idrissou (81.) about the goal scorers (7. Minute) and also formed with the greek national player konstantinos fortounis (20) the lauter wing pincer. Even younger is the 19-year-old dominique heintz in central defense. Florian riedel (22) and kwame nsor (20) were substituted during the game.

The pfalz jugendstil has a system. Most of the young players stood in the west stand of the fritz walter stadium as teenagers, then became ball boys, played in the various youth teams and finally recommended themselves for a contract with the professionals via the regional league team. "It"s fantastic," said linsmayer. "I used to stand in the west curve and admire the players. Today I got there after the game from a fan after our victory a scarf as a gift."

Captain florian dick is full of praise for the young "double six" that played in front of the defense for the first time in this formation after the absences of ariel borysiuk, enis alushi, mimoun azaouagh and pierre de wit. "They have a great quality, clear a lot and provide relief," he said. The captain is also impressed by the calmness that his young sidekick heintz exudes. "That"s outstanding, with which cold determination he goes into the duels and also sometimes switches on the turbo to the front – that has a future."

Linsmayer sees it the same way. "We"re getting better at it with each game," he said. "But actually not much has changed in comparison to the regional league. Fubball is still a game."

Coach foda follows a clear philosophy with his youth style. During his time at sturm graz, he helped many talented players make the jump to the first team. "Everyone can impose themselves in training through performance," says the 46-year-old.

Although the many young players are currently also benefiting from the bad injury luck of the promotion favorite. Foda had to replace a total of eight professionals against aue. But first, with the polish borysiuk (21) or even the 25-year-old de wit, some of the dropouts still belong to the "young wild ones". And then in goalkeeper marius muller (19), willi orban (20) and julian derstroff (20) the next talents at FCK are already in the starting blocks.
