Football Bundesliga 1. FC Cologne has finished looking for a permanent solution at the position of the Football Bundesligists Managing Director — but still has to wait almost four months on his desired candidate. The Geßböcke announced the commitment of Christian Keller on Tuesday, the 42-year-old will take over the position on April 1, 2022. Keller, who worked as the sole managing director at the second division John Regensburg by the end of October, is scheduled to work together at the Effie with Thomas Kessler, athletic head of the license player department, and Lukas Berg, Head Administration License Player Department. Jörg Jacobs, who has been inheriting the Football Bundesligisting responsibility for the FC at the end of May since the dismissal of Horst Held, will then return to an advisory function.
