Schalke boss David Wagner has revealed he has a fully-fit squad for Saturday’s Bundesliga clash with RB Leipzig. Wagner’s side are fifth in the early Bundesliga table after five games but face a stiff test this weekend when they travel to early leaders Leipzig, who are two points clear of reigning champions Bayern Munich at the top.
Leipzig beat Werder Bremen last weekend 3-0, while Schalke were 2-1 winners over Mainz.
Leipzig have not lost yet, having won four and drawn one of their first five, while Schalke have won three out of five so far.
There’s likely to be little to choose between the two sides at the Red Bull Arena and Wagner is pleased to have a fully-fit squad to choose from for the first time this season after Benito Raman recently returned to training following an ankle injury.
The former Huddersfield Town chief admits it’s a bonus to have everyone available although it also presents him with some selection posers, as he prepares to take on a team he believes are “serious candidates for the title” this season.
He told the club’s website: “These are the moments that a coach loves. It’s great to have the full team back.
Huge compliments to our medical department, our physios and our athletic trainers, who have been working around the clock. “I’m spoilt for choice – but that’s a good thing and it’s certainly much better than only being able to plan with only 15 of your own players.”Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
