Sporting director Thomas Heingen wants to attract players who at first glance might seem too big for the Palatinate. With goalkeeper Andreas Luth of Union Berlin, the FCK coach has already followed his sayings. Now the traditional club is facing the next sudden transition.
According to Kicker’s information, the second division is in advanced talks with right-back Eric Dorm. Graduation is imminent. The right-back, seeded at Eintracht Frankfurt for most of the 2020/21 season and eventually finished fifth with Hesien, has not played a role in the big city for some time. Last season, it was last used in November in Oliver Glasner’s team.
Conversion can be controlled though there is a contract until 2023
The 2014 world champion – albeit not playing in Brazil – was born far from Kaiserslautern in Pirmasens in the Palatinate, but has never played for the Red Devils. This could change now. Despite the ongoing contract with Eintracht until 2023, the Europa League winner will not put any obstacles in his way. High transfer fee will not come to the upgraded second class.
At Betzenberg, Dorm could play as a left or right defender in the four-way defensive line. Dorm has also played a number of others at the front. Exactly that versatility and experience for a 30-year-old right-footed player would look good in FCK.
For Borussia Dortmund, Eintracht and Huddersfield Town Dorm have completed 128 first-division matches in Germany and England. There are also 27 Champions League and Europa League matches and seven international matches under Jogi Löw.
More options for Schuster in the rear wheel
FCK coach Dirk Schuster currently has captain Jan Zimmer, Hendrik Zuke, who has long been absent from outside positions in the center of defence. Dominic Shad and local Neil Gibbs on the team. With Philip Hirscher, the promotion’s top scorer, the new coach plans to take on a more offensive role.
