Everything for the climb!
Schalke’s vice-captain Victor Pálsson (30) came back earlier from the Icelandic national team and voluntarily waived the World Cup qualifying game against Liechtenstein (4-0) on Monday.
BILD knows the reason: The boss six did not want to miss a single training second this week before returning to the starting eleven after the red ban on Friday in Hanover (6.30 p.m. / Sky).
Pálsson back: Schalke’s promotion axis complete!
Even with a self-critical look at his unnecessary dismissal in the bankruptcy against Karlsruhe (1: 2), the midfield leader wants to prove that he is one of four key players.
► Simon Terodde (33) scores as he wants (already 11 goals this season). It gives coach Dimitrios Grammozis (43) more time to develop the team.
► Ko Itakura (24) unpacks the ascent tackle in the defense center. The new Schalke samurai inspires the fans, impresses the opponents.
► Martin Fraisl (28) justified the promotion to number 1 through the zero games in Rostock (2: 0) and against Ingolstadt (3: 0). The Ösi keeper can be a great support, the flutter goalkeeper Ralf Fährmann (33) was no longer.
► And Pálsson brings in the clearing aggressiveness, which is absolutely necessary for success in the 2nd league.
A stable ascent axis that Schalke wants to roll over to their third win in a row in Hanover.
