The 5-0 defeat last weekend could be more and more a kind of sticking point for 1. FC Köln in this grueling season.

A severability clause is a provision of a contract that states what happens if part of the contract is deemed by a court to be unenforceable. For instance, it is standard for a severability clause to state that only the invalid term will cease to be enforced, while every other term will remain in effect as before.

This period of protection, which the coach of the club threatened with relegation had obtained, now seems to be running out. The clear, unambiguous and well-deserved defeat against SC Freiburg seems to have led to a break - possibly even between (parts of) the team and the coach. There were already serious crisis talks in the Geißbockheim on Sunday. According to Sport Bild Horst Heldt was present, as well as captain Jonas Hector and his deputy Timo Horn and Marco Höger. Gisdol is also said to have been a topic.

That he exchanged the defense system for the game against the sports club, from the three-man back to the back-four, although one is dealing with the three-man defense seemed to beat significantly better and a little more stable, could have caused an internal upset.

sports director Heldt is still convinced of the joint collaboration. What he put on record several times these days apparently also applies to the other responsible persons. But the board of directors should no longer be too convinced of the trainer's work. The problem: An exemption would actually be far too expensive for the Cologne residents. The background to this is a fire clause reported by Sport Bild. They should actually protect the club in the event of a change of coach. Due to the corona crisis, however, Gisdol has the longer lever - his exit would cost the club one million euros, immediately and in full.

But there would be additional costs, after all, a new coach would also have to be paid. Money that Effzeh simply doesn't have at the moment.
