Attack or crash?
In the upcoming top games against St. Pauli (Saturday, 8.30 p.m. / Sky), Nuremberg and HSV it will be decided whether Schalke will stay at the top of the table – or let it tear down in the promotion race.
Three extremely important games that also have an impact on the planned transfer of Thomas Ouwejan (25 / on loan from AZ Alkmaar) …
So Schalke wants to keep the hammer Dutchman
► The Dutchman (2 goals / 6 assists) enthuses the fans and is already too good for the second division, especially offensively. That did not go unnoticed.
According to BILD information, the left-back is already being observed by Leverkusen and Gladbach, among others. Good for Schalke: Ouwejan absolutely wants to play in the Bundesliga – preferably with royal blue.
► If Schalke rises, a purchase obligation of 2 million euros applies. If the Bundesliga return does not work out, there is a purchase option. It is only questionable whether the Pott-Klub, which is then still in the second division, would be able to cope with it.
the fact is: Ouwejan should definitely be kept. Schalke relies on the feel-good factor for this.
Sports director Rouven Schröder (46) when asked by BILD: “We would like to work with him in the medium and long term. The family is close by, he is a regular player and has no hectic pace. His goal is the Bundesliga. But he doesn’t say now, if we can’t do it, I’ll look around. And yet you don’t know what will happen if other clubs come … “
Schalke and Ouwejan – promotion would significantly increase the chances for a future together!
Sports director Rouven Schröder (46) has now also confirmed what SportBILD has already reported. Rodrigo Zalazar (22) stays with royal blue even in the event of non-promotion. The “Uru” can be borrowed from Eintracht Frankfurt until the end of the season – including an obligation to purchase regardless of sporting success. Schröder: “The transfer was very complex, but now there are no more complications.”
As BILD already reported, the Pott Club wants to top it off again in winter, especially in storms. Sports director Rouven Schröder (46): “We’re holding the last few talks.”
