1. FC Köln: Tigges: “Hope Anthony Modeste will be warmly welcomed”



Before the duel of the exchange strikers |

TIGGES “I hope Modeste will be given a warm welcome!”

He no longer plays for FC. But on Saturday everyone is still looking at Anthony Modeste (34)!

Cologne’s ex-scorer is returning to Müngersdorf for the first time since moving to Neu-Club Dortmund – and must expect a cold reception. With Steffen Tigges (24) his successor is making strong for Tony.

“I think there have been a few people who have felt their toes stepped on. I can’t say how he will be received by the fans. I think Tony did great things together with the team last season,” says Tigges, who played for BVB from 2019 to 2020 before moving to Cologne.

And further: “I hope that he will not repeat it on Saturday, but at least that he will be welcomed in a friendly manner and that there will be no negative mood.”

The duel of the exchange strikers. Tigges is to take on the role of Modeste in Cologne on a permanent basis. But after a long injury break (ankle fracture), the “Tigginator” (his nickname) is only slowly gaining momentum and is still waiting for his first league booth.

“Now I’m full of juice again, I feel good,” he assures, “but my rate can still be improved, especially in terms of chances. It’s still far too little there.”

His record: 4 games, no goal, no template. Tigges was more successful in the Conference League. In Nice he scored at 1:1.

Tigges (1.93 m) came from BVB in the summer for around 1.5 million euros, signed until 2026. Coach Steffen Baumgart (50) had already wanted to lure the striker to Cologne last year, but failed at the time due to an objection from Dortmund’s ex- Coach Marco Rose (46/now Leipzig).

“I’m fully motivated. We haven’t won two games recently, so we want to get three points, especially at home against these opponents,” said Tigges before the reunion with black and yellow.

Does he want to celebrate a goal against Borussia? “I would decide that spontaneously.”

I’m sure it’s similar to Modeste!
