Schalke striker Breel Em­bolo out for ‘at least 4-6 months’

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Schalke says its club-record sign­ing, striker Breel Em­bolo, has been ruled out for “at least four to six months” af­ter un­der­go­ing surgery on his bro­ken an­kle. The 19-year-old Em­bolo suf­fered lig­a­ment and bone dam­age in a foul by Augs­burg de­fender Kon­stanti­nos Stafy­lidis dur­ing the 1-1 Bundesliga draw be­tween the sides Satur­day. Schalke sport­ing di­rec­tor Chris­tian Hei­del says “we will give Breel ev­ery sup­port so he can come back strongly from this se­ri­ous in­jury and re­turn to where he was be­fore he was forced to stop.” Em­bolo, a $25 mil­lion sum­mer sign­ing from Swiss side Basel, scored his first two Bundesliga goals in Schalke’s pre­vi­ous game, a 4-0 win over Borus­sia Moenchenglad­bach.
