Marcelo moves to Olympiacos Piraeus
Of the FC Schalke 04 strengthened his offensive again shortly before the transfer window in the Bundesliga closed. The Royal Blues signed in Kenankaraman from Besiktaş Istanbul an old acquaintance. The Turkish national player, who has a three-year contract and is moving on a free transfer, was born in Stuttgart and has already played in the Bundesliga for TSG Hoffenheim, Hannover 96 and most recently Fortuna Düsseldorf.
On the offensive, Schalke are nominally well positioned with Simon Terodde, Sebastian Polter and the three-time goalscorer Marius Bülter. Nevertheless, the traditional club is still without a win with four goals after four games.
“Kenan brings the right mix of physicality and speed from our point of view and is therefore an option for all positions on the offensive,” sporting director Rouven Schröder was quoted as saying in a club statement on Thursday. “In addition to his sporting quality, his experience from more than 100 Bundesliga games and over 30 international matches in the fight for league can be a factor, especially in the tight, decisive moments.” (dpa)
