Schalke 04 upgrades again for the relegation battle in the Bundesliga. The bottom of the table has strikers Michael Frey (28) until the end of the season from the Belgian first division club Royal Antwerp loaned out, after which the Royal Blues have an option to buy. Schalke announced this on Friday.
“Following the injury-related absence of Sebastian Polter we had to react in the center of the storm. We clearly succeeded in doing that with Michael, with him we have gained a tall, physically robust and dynamic center forward who will close the gap that has arisen on the offensive,” said sporting director Peter Knäbel.
“I will do everything to fit into the team as quickly as possible so that we can score points together,” said Swiss Frey. Schalke will play on Saturday (3:30 p.m. / Sky). Eintracht Frankfurt. (sid)
