Schalke Pre-Season Results

AC Arles-Avignon 1-1 Schalke (Hoger)

Chelsea 3-2 Schalke (Huntelaar, Afellay)

Schalke 0-0 Charlton (11-10 Penalties)

Schalke 2-0 Stade Brestois (Fer, Barnetta)

Westerlo 2-4 Schalke (Huntelaar x3, Fer)

Schalke manager Lilian Thuram has revealed today that he is utterly disappointed with the clubs performance in pre-season. Speaking to Sky Sports News, Thuram had this to say, "Even though we managed to spring a few good performances late on in pre-season, i still think we could have done better. Obviously the players have got to get used to my tactics, so it was not going to be easy, but even then, i still think that they could have offered a lot more for the club".
Some decent results but not the best :D

Schalke Complete Cornelius Signing

Schalke have today completed the signing of 19 year old Danish striker Andreas Cornelius from FC Kobenhavn for a fee worth up to £2m. Schalke will pay £500k up front, with the other £1.5m being paid in monthly installments over 48 months for Cornelius, who made his Kobenhavn debut in the 11-12 season, where he made two appearances. Prior to signing for Schalke, Cornelius had made 5 appearances in the Danish Superliga, scoring 5 goals which impressed manager Lilian Thuram. The young striker has also made his senior debut for Denmark, which came after he hit 5 goals in 5 games for Kobenhavn. Speaking to German newspaper Die Zeit, Thuram explained the need to sign young Cornelius. "Well, i know i said that my signings were completed for the summer, but i also said that i would only sign additional players in exceptional circumstances, and i felt that we needed some extra fire power up front. The lad is an exceptional talent and i feel that he could become one of the greatest strikers in the Bundesliga".
Nice signing James.
A value for money signing, he'll really have to step up to the plate for you though.

Berliner (Away)

Werder Bremen (Home)

Player Of The Month

Jefferson Farfan deserves the clubs player of the month after scoring a goal in each of the matches against Berliner and Bremen. He also managed to grab 3 assists between the two games and performances like this will not go unnoticed and this shows exactly why he is a first teamer.
