Since the beginning of the second half, Salif Sané regularly stands for the FC Schalke 04 on the square. Previously, the Senegalese had had to be a felt eternity with injury worship. Now the center defender wants to bring his great experience to help the climb.
Only in November Salif Sané returned to the field. A short joker mission against the SV Darmstadt followed a recent forced break due to thigh problems until just before Christmas. Meanwhile, the 31-year-old is completely fit.
It is well possible that coach Dimitrios Grammozis will continue to serve on Sané’s services in the future, after all, the defense man as one of the few professionals in the squad has ever handed up a climb. In 2017 he succeeded with Hannover 96 the leap into the Oberhaus.
Nevertheless, the Routinier sees differences between the Lower Saxony and FC Schalke. The situation in Gelsenkirchen is “again different,” Sané revealed “T-Online” in an interview and thus played on expectation.
FC Schalke 04 wants to “not stay in the second league”
“Schalke 04 is a very large club. We have to be in the first league. That’s why I want to do everything for the club and ascend into the first league,” emphasized the large defensive actor.
The goal of the royal blue is clear: “We do not want to stay in the second league, our path goes on in the first league. This is not just my mission, but also my teammates and the whole club.”
Keep worry that it could not be enough in the end, Sané does not feel. “We are really good right now and have a lot of self-confidence,” the former national player of the Senegal clarified in front of the home game against the SC Paderborn on Friday evening (from 18:30 in the live ticker).
