Defender alarm at Schalke: Leo Greiml will also be absent until the end of the year!

As if five competitive bankruptcies, the release of the head coach and the miserable performances of the team weren't enough, Schalke also had bad luck with injuries. Leo Greiml will no longer be able to stand on the pitch this year. As well as three other central defender colleagues.

Schalke are running out of central defenders! Leo Greiml will be absent from the Knappen until the end of the year. The 21-year-old Austrian has to undergo meniscus surgery on Friday. The summer signing had only just recovered from a cruciate ligament injury and was on the pitch for the entire season in the last two Bundesliga games. The central defender had already missed the cup duel against Hoffenheim.

Now followed the bitter certainty that an operation is necessary, after which Greiml will be out until the end of the year. "We are very sorry for Leo. He fought back impressively after his cruciate ligament injury. This fighting attitude will now help him to return to the pitch healthy and as quickly as possible," explained S04 sporting director Rouven Schröder.

For Schalke it is already the fourth failure of a central defender. The miners are also currently without Marcin Kaminski (cut calf), Ibrahima Cissé (muscle injury) and Sepp van den Berg (ligament injury). All three will also be out by the end of the year.

Veteran Maya Yoshida remains the only trained central defender in the squad, even if Henning Matriciani has also played this position very often.
