–Schalke coach not ready to risk Eagles star
Nigerian forward Chinedu Obasi will play no part in Schalke’s 04 DFB Cup clash at home to Third division side Dynamo Dresden today his coach Jens Keller has revealed.
The Royal Blues’ gaffer who expressed his delight to have the trio of Benedikt Höwedes, Julian Draxler and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar back in good shape also added he wasn’t ready to risk the 27 year old forward who is regaining full fitness against the Bundesliga 2 side.
“Nothing major, but we don’t want to take any risks,” Keller emphasised. The recuperating player scored twice in pre-season for the Blues.
Schalke will also be without the already injured sextuplet of Jefferson Farfan, Fabian Giefer, Jan Kirchhoff, Leon Goretzka and Atsuto Uchida.
Dennis Aogo will also not feature for the Miners. The left-footer underwent a minor operation for a thigh rupture.
