FC Schalke 04: Sudden double exit is looming – fans can not understand it
In a few days it will be on the training grounds of the FC Schalke 04 round again. Coach Dimitrios Grammozis asks his team to kick off the preparation. The miners have their sights set firmly on the mission of ascent.
The question of which players of the FC Schalke actually be in the square on June 14th. The squad is in the midst of upheaval. Several players should still leave the club. However, the latest rumors are causing a lack of understanding among fans.
FC Schalke 04: Are Schalke just two offensive players?
The Royal Blues have recorded 14 departures so far – more should and will follow. Rabbi Matondo and Matthew Hoppe are now said to be among the possible candidates who are allowed to leave the association.
Matondo already had a difficult time at Schalke. The Welshman has been playing on loan at the English second division side Stoke City since the beginning of the year. However, his performances were not so appealing that Schalke would now lick their fingers after his return.
Instead, the 20-year-old could go straight from the island to Belgium. As the “Bild” reports, there is a loan deal with the KRC Genk including an unspecified purchase option.
Due to the fact that Matondo could not prevail in Gelsenkirchen despite his talent, not many fans will cry after him. Nevertheless, there are voices who want to see him still in the royal blue jersey. Especially because Schalke could traditionally use reinforcement on the outside lanes.

There is much greater agreement among the fans in the outrage that Hoppe should now also be considered a sales candidate. The young striker had only extended his contract in February – with the express note that this also applies to League 2.
Schalke fans can’t believe it
Nevertheless, the “Bild” reports that those responsible around Peter Knäbel would be prepared to let the American go if an offer was made. Clubs from Spain and Italy are considered possible buyers.
This is how Schalke fans react to the Hoppe rumor:
- “Will we soon be playing without a striker?”
- “Then why did you renew with Hoppe?”
- “Just hollow.”
- “Everything is just ridiculous.”
- “Why Hoppe? Because it has potential? “
- “I do not understand the world anymore.”
The lack of understanding of the fans is reflected in the many reactions to this news. With Simon Terodde, Schalke would only have one striker in the squad.
Because both Klaas-Jan Huntelaar and Goncalo Paciencia leave the club. Mark Uth’s departure seems only a matter of time. If Schalke 04 then also sells Hoppe, a new construction site would be unnecessary.
