Huntelaar fell into the cup match against Sandhausen (1-4) are short for time. “After the long absence and hard work during my rehabilitation, it was nice to get back on the field,” says Huntelaar Thursday against Reviersport.

“I have a week ago, the group training will resume,” says the striker. “But a match is always different than training. I hope soon again to be valuable for Schalke.”

The rehabilitation cost the 76-fold international a lot of effort. “If you’re 33, it is of course different to be injured than on your eighteenth,” said Huntelaar. “But if you’re injured, you always want as quickly as possible and return. At first I thought that the injury is not so serious.”
