Bundesliga Media Days: Eintracht Frankfurt

Frankfurt - With Armin Veh back at the helm and a handful of fresh faces in tow, Eintracht Frankfurt held their annual Media Day on Wednesday.

The event, which takes place at the Commerzbank Arena, is used to present the Eagles' new signings, take official photographs and produce exclusive media content for use throughout the upcoming campaign. rounds up the highlights…


Frankfurt media day: best bits with Luc Castaignos saw how the Eagles’ new signing got on at the club’s official Media Day.

1. New experiences

For Luc Castaignos, Eintracht’s summer signing from FC Twente, the Media Day in Frankfurt was an unfamiliar experience. “We never had anything like this in the Eredivisie,” said the highly-touted striker, who joined the Eagles after making a name for himself in the Dutch top-flight, scoring 52 goals in 131 appearances.


3. Best buddies already

It seems that Castaignos has already found a brother in arms at the club in the form of the squad’s joker in the pack Constant Djakpa. As the Ivorian international was giving an interview, Castaignos snuck behind him with a garden hose before turning on the tap. It could well be the start of a great friendship between the two.

5. Consistently good from the corner flag

The last stop of the Media Day was at the so called 'Cornerkings' challenge, where Castaignos had a chance to prove why everyone in Frankfurt is raving about his talents. The aim: put the ball in the net with one bounce or less from a corner. Two of his four attempts did just that – a record which earned him respect from his new team-mates.
