Schalke confirms return of kolasinac

FC schalke 04 pulled off a surprise coup by bringing in sead kolasinac just before the turn of the year. The bundesliga club confirmed that the 27-year-old defender has been signed on loan from arsenal until the end of the season.

The left-back, who had already played for schalke from 2011 to 2017, signed the new contract until june 2021 after his medical check in gelsenkirchen. Previously, several media had reported on the transfer.

"We have worked intensively on the return of sead kolasinac and are really proud that with him a real schalker boy is coming home," said sporting director jochen schneider in a statement. "Sead embodies precisely the values that characterize schalke 04 and are elementary in the fight to stay in the league: an unwavering will and a strong character."

He is "happy and proud to wear the FC schalke 04 jersey again," said kolasinac. "The association is currently in a very difficult situation. In the coming weeks and months, I want to do my part to help us score as many points as possible. Together we will manage to stay in the league – i am 100 percent convinced of that."The return is "an absolute affair of the heart" for him.

With the national player from bosnia-herzegovina, the new schalke coach christian gross gets the strengthening he was hoping for. Kolasinac will receive the jersey number 20 and will reportedly even take over the captain’s armband from omar mascarell. Despite the financial strains, gross had wished for a winter move to the last team in the league table.

Gross sees need for action above all on the defensive and offensive eaves lanes. Schalke has virtually no alternative to bastian oczipka on the left side of defense preferred by kolasinac. Hamza mendyl has not yet been able to prove his suitability for the national soccer league. In this respect, the return of the former public favorite makes sense. In addition, schalke is hoping for a change in mood. A right-back is also still being sought, especially as kilian ludewig will be out for a long time after a fub operation.

Kolasinac has long been unhappy in london, where he still has a contract until 2022. Due to injury and a covid 19 disease, he has only been used once in the current premier league season, on the second matchday. He also played a few games in the european league.

He was extremely popular with fans in gelsenkirchen until his move in 2017. In 94 bundesliga games, he scored four goals and never made a secret of his feeling for schalke. Financing the deal will not be easy. Kolasinac will certainly have to do without large parts of his lavish salary. According to bild, schalke must transfer around 2.4 million euros to arsenal for half a year.

According to DFL regulations for the winter transfer period, kolasinac will be able to play at the earliest at the home premiere of the big club on 9 september. January against hoffenheim for schalke again. First of all, the beekeeping club has to meet in the new year on saturday (18.30 o’clock) at hertha BSC ran.
