Weston McKennie visits FC Schalke 04 training.

At the FC Schalke 04 many fans must have been amazed by the building blocks when they came to the first training session after the derby defeat on Tuesday.

Suddenly, a familiar face appeared in front of them, with which nobody FC Schalke 04 should have expected.

FC Schalke 04: prominent training guest at Berger Feld

It’s been two years since he turned his back on Schalke. First he went on loan to Juventus Turin, then the Italian record champions signed him for over 20 million euros.

S04 fans have long known who it is: Weston McKennie. The home-grown product has matured into a star in Italy. In the meantime, he will be sorely missed at Schalke.

Weston McKennie with surprise visit

In Turin he is also in his third season and despite a broken metatarsal in February. Because Serie A is now also on hold, he used the international break for a flying visit to his old homeland.

International match with the USA in Düsseldorf

Without much notice, McKennie showed up at public practice on Tuesday. The now 24-year-old used the USA’s trip to the international match against Japan in Düsseldorf to visit old friends at Berger Feld.

There aren’t many of them left. With Ralf Fährmann, Michael Langer and Florian Flick there are only three players with whom he still played for S04 back then. He should have recognized more people on the staff. Mike Büskens, Gerald Asamoah and Co must have been very happy about the familiar face.
