Even under Interim Coach Huub Stevens, Yevhen Konoplyanka simply does not get on the train with the football leaguer FC Schalke 04, who is threatened with falling. The signs are that even in summer the 29-year-old is fleeing the Ruhr.
As the “picture” said on Tuesday, the Ukrainian has already spoken to his surroundings about a change of association next summer. Konoplyanka is simply not happy with the Schalkern, as in the past almost three years in Gelsenkirchen no one has permanently put on the wing-stormer.
Trainer-Routinier Huub Stevens brought the left-saucer against Hanover 96 (1:0) only in the 90’s. Minute, At the recent home match against Eintracht Frankfurt (1:2) he was then not even in the frame despite Schalker’s claims of injury.
Already among the Stevens predecessors Markus Weinzierl and Domenico Tedesco Konoplyanka was never set for a longer period as a regular player.
Only six federal gates in three leagues years
His persistent performance fluctuations as well as his final weaknesses continue to be the undoing of the 80-time national player. All in all, Konoplyanka has just had six Bundesliga goals on Schalke in his work certificate in almost three games.
The offensive player had switched from FC Seville to Gelsenkirchen in the summer 2016, at that time the club cost the club 12,5 million euros. His current work paper will be running until next summer. If FC Schalke wants to earn some money from his complementary player, he must get rid of him in the next transfer phase.
