With 5: 0 (2: 0) the FC Schalke 04 won on Saturday at Erzgebirge Aue. However, a royal blue could not celebrate the brilliant away win: Dominick Drexler, who was surprisingly deleted from head coach Dimitrios Grammozis from the squad. Over the reasons, the S04 coach stopped afterwards.

For weeks, football second division FC Schalke 04 had longed the return of midfielder Dominick Drexler, who could celebrate his comeback after muscular problems on the 1-1 (0: 0) against Holstein Kiel on the 19th matchday. That the 31-year-old few days later did not stand in the match tag of the scarce, therefore caused astonishment among the Schalke trailers.

“I do not want to say that he was too bad in the training. All guys give gas and we have to name a squad,” head coach Dimitrios Grammozis then announced “WAZ”.

A real explanation did not want to deliver the German Greek, even pushed behind: “Of course you have to explain a player from time to time, why he is not there. But you do not have to be permanently talking to the guys and explain, explain, explain.”

Latza does not bother any groll: “Egos aside”

Drexler, recovered in the summer of 1. FC Cologne, was so far with 15 competitive games of the royal blue on the grass. He gets a goal and four templates. Of too long long, his non-consideration on Schalke, however, was not allowed to look through the exercise manager: “Today it has been so that Dome was not there. This can change again after the conference break. Everyone can give gas, everyone can give themselves show. Also dome. “

For excitement in the Schalke environment, the decision of Dimitrios Grammozis had previously taken care of Captain Danny Latza after surviving muscle injury to take into account for the starting formation. The 32-year-old first took place against Aue only on the bank, but then was allowed to prove after the break – and impressed with his first two trips.

Grolled Latza, given the decision of the coach to “Erzgebirge Aue1”, not: “We have to put the egos aside. It’s about Schalke 04, not every single 1. We all have a goal and then have to go back.”
