Another injury has hit the Köln camp with Florian Dietz diagnosed with an ACL injury. There is no exact timetable for his return, but there’s a good chance he’ll miss the rest of the campaign.

Steffen Baumgart commented, “First and foremost, I really feel for Flo. But he is a real fighter. He fought back after his first knee injury and his serious shoulder problem with a real discipline. He’ll do that again and we will do everything to support him on his way. It is really bitter, that we’ve lost another player through no fault of our own.”

Dietz was promoted from Köln’s reserve team before the season and had tallied three goals thus far. The operation will be performed by team doctor Dr. Peter Schäferhoff on Wednesday.
