Bergen – goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann wants to become the goalkeeper again at FC Schalke 04. The 31-year-old currently lent to Brann Bergen in Norway confirmed that he would like to come back to Gelsenkirchen in the summer.
«I want a fair chance. And when I receive this, I am so convinced that I can be number 1 again, ”said Fahrmann to the internet portal transfermarkt.de. “Everyone knows that Schalke is my dream club and I’m settled there.”
Fahrmann had lost his regular place in the Schalke gate to Alexander Nubel a year ago. Nubel changes to FC Bayern Munich for the new season. Before the Bundesliga break due to the coronavirus pandemic, Markus Schubert (21) had initially been selected as number one of the royal blues.
Fahrmann was initially awarded to Norwich City last year, but only made a short appearance in the Premier League. In March Fahrmann was then awarded to Norway. Because of the coronavirus crisis, the keeper still has to wait for an assignment there. “I hope that the start of the season will not be postponed again and that I can play a few more games until the end of June, so I came here,” said Fahrmann.
Meanwhile, Schalke’s coach David Wagner is hopeful that he will be able to fall back on Daniel Caligiuri if the Bundesliga continues in May. As FC Schalke confirmed, the 32-year-old started training again after breaking his inner ligament in his knee in early February. The “Bild” had previously reported on this.
«He can do anything. He could get on board in the next few weeks if we should be back in team training at this point, »said coach David Wagner. Midfielder Caligiuri’s contract expires at the end of June.
The Revierclub currently trains simple ball exercises on the court on individual days a week in groups of two with the necessary spacing. Due to the coronavirus pandemic, appropriate precautionary measures are being followed. So each professional changes individually in his own cabin. On other days, Schalke conducts cyber training via video switching. One always demonstrates exercises that the others then take part in at home.
