FC Schalke 04 currently has the second-worst defense in the league with 32 goals conceded. At least there is good news for the miners in terms of personnel. Central defender Sepp van den Berg is expected to return soon after a long lay-off due to injury.
The young defender was last in England, where he completed his rehabilitation. However, the Dutchman has now traveled to Gelsenkirchen to be examined by the Schalke team doctor. The Royal Blues are now hoping that the positive signs will intensify. "As the news from England has been so far, he seems to be before the original recovery period. He has a high value for the second phase of the season," announced Knäbel. According to the WAZ, Schalke originally assumed that van den Berg would be far will be canceled in 2023. Now everything sounds a little more positive, although we probably only after the examinations by team doctor Dr. Patrick Ingelfinger could find out more about downtime. FC Schalke will start the second half of the season in Frankfurt on January 21st. Whether with or without van den Berg remains questionable.
