When the Fortuna was only able to fall back on a fuselage squad in mid-March due to 14 Corona cases, the hour suddenly hit Köther. Even without any commitment before, he found himself once in the starting line -up against Paderborn and even contributed an assist in 1-1.

“Trust the jump with us”

However, the debut remained in the debut, and another commitment in the professional team has not followed since then – and now the paths are separating at the end of the season. Köther is drawn to Brenz to 1. FC Heidenheim, who sees “still a lot of potential” in the left wing, as the CEO Holger Sanwald is cited on the club website. Köther is “at a very development -capable age. That is why we trust him to make the league in the 2nd league.”

Köther switched from Aachen to Fortuna in 2019 and has scored six goals in 29 games in the Regionalliga West this season. There and in his second division debut, he “sustainably noticed with strong performance with strong performance,” said Sanwald. The wing player signed a three -year contract by 2025 for the Heidenheimers. It does not cost a transfer: his contract with F95 ends this summer.
