Cologne coach Steffen Baumgart is usually known for his gruff nature. But on Thursday he showed his funny side by turning up to training dressed as a pink unicorn with a blonde wig and sunglasses. Most of his players marked the start of carnival season by sporting their coach’s trademark flat cap. Striker Anthony Modeste meanwhile dressed up as a doctor, apparently in reference to his many injuries while at the Bundesliga football club. Cologne is a big carnival city in Germany and November 11 is the traditional start of the season, even if the main event is not until the end of February.
