“On the mend”
Christoph Daum will be in touch at Christmas

Christoph Daum comments on Instagram about his state of health after the cancer diagnosis: “I’m on the road to recovery.” In addition, the football coach has an important New Year’s message.

Christoph Daum reported to Instagram for Christmas. “I wish us all a Merry Christmas and all the best for the New Year 2023,” the 69-year-old begins his message, to which he added a picture of himself in front of the Christmas tree. At the same time, he would like to “thank you very much for the countless encouraging and supportive words over the past few months,” he continues.

These would have given him strength and confidence, and “affected all treatments extremely positively”. He is “well on the mend” and thanks go to the entire team at CIO Cologne. At the end, Daum made an appeal to the public: “My New Year’s message is: Take cancer screening! Thank you again and good health.”

The football coach announced in October that he had cancer and was undergoing chemotherapy. He received the diagnosis “as part of a routine examination,” he wrote alongside a photo of himself and his doctor, Prof. Dr. Jürgen Wolf, on Instagram. He has been in treatment since then, the therapy would “work very well for him,” explained Daum.

At express.de he added that the chemotherapy had shown a very good effect. “It was intense and very high doses, but fortunately I’m otherwise in good health and was able to cope with it,” said Daum.

Christoph Daum is known throughout Germany as a coaching legend. From the 1980s to 2017, he coached numerous Bundesliga clubs – VfB Stuttgart, Bayer Leverkusen, Eintracht Frankfurt and 1. FC Köln – as well as teams in other European countries. Under his leadership, VfB Stuttgart became German champions in 1992.
