U19 coach Patz becomes the head coach of the professionals

So now it should fix Patz. Born in Bad Salzungen, he has been a trainer at the FCC’s youth training center since August 2020 and previously worked as co- and interim trainer at Cercle Bruges and Royal Mouscron in the men’s area. He received a contract as head coach, which initially ran until the end of the season, with the option of a contract extension in the event of promotion to the third division until the summer of 2024. The 37-year-old was by no means an “embarrassing solution,” said Förster. They are absolutely convinced of the new trainer. “Andreas Patz will turn the right screws,” assured Werner.

The previous junior coach thanked the club for the trust placed in him at his official presentation. “I am really looking forward to the task and would like to do my part to achieve the goals with the team. I am full of energy,” said Patz, who does not want to turn every stone before the duel against the BFC. “First and foremost, it is important to get to know the team. I want to play offensively, defend well and be dominant. We want to keep the three points here.”
