FC Schalke 04: ex-professional refused to return

“I’ve said many times that I’d like to play for Schalke one day. But it would also depend on which league they play in. But I would definitely listen to it. Because of my loyalty, Schalke would have a bonus compared to other clubs,” said Hofmann before the home game of his then club Karlsruher SC against FC Schalke 04 in February in the second division.

A few weeks later his move to VfL Bochum became known. Ironically, to the district neighbor. But the connection to his ex-club, which he finally left from Knappenschmiede in 2014, is still great.

“It’s no secret that I owe Schalke 04 a lot. There I was trained as a footballer and became German champion with the U19. Schalke gave me my first professional contract, of course you don’t forget something like that,” Hofmann explained to “Sport1” shortly before the start of the Bundesliga.
