FC Schalke 04 is apparently getting its hopeful Klaas-Jan Huntelaar. According to a report by ‘Bild’, the 37-year-old Ajax Amsterdam attacker has decided to return to the Royal Blues.
Schalke’s club icon will officially announce the decision this Sunday evening. First, Huntelaar wants to play his last game in Ajax dress in today’s top game against Feyenoord Rotterdam.
On Friday, the veteran told ‘ESPN’: “It’s a difficult decision for me. I played for Ajax for a long time. Ajax and Schalke are the clubs that I value the most. Schalke is in need. And Schalke might need me a little more – it’s a gut decision. “
The Royal Blues would get a Huntelaar in top form for the relegation battle despite their advanced age. In eleven league games, the Bundesliga shooter scored seven goals in 2011/12. Only during the week did the Dutchman tie a brace against Twente Enschede (3-1) as a joker in stoppage time.
