Year ended prematurely: Schalke without Thomas Ouwejan for the time being

FC Schalke will have to cope with the next defensive failure: Thomas Ouwejan will not be used again this year.

In the most recent Bundesliga game against SC Freiburg (0:2), Thomas Ouwejan was over after just under half an hour. The S04 left-back had previously injured his knee and was unable to continue.

Finally, on Wednesday, the Royal Blues announced that the Dutchman was diagnosed with an "internal ligament injury" which forced Ouwejan to take a break. This means that the 26-year-old will no longer be available in the remaining games in 2022 against Werder Bremen, FSV Mainz and Bayern Munich.

In addition to Ouwejan, the new head coach Thomas Reis will also have to do without fellow defenders Leo Greiml, Marcin Kaminski, Ibrahima Cissé and Sepp van den Berg. In addition, Rodrigo Zalazar will be out until the end of the year.

This article was originally ended prematurely on 90min.com/de as a year: Schalke initially published without Thomas Ouwejan.
