Schenk’s unhappy Dundee spell ends
Goalkeeper Arvid Schenk has left Dundee after possibly the most unsuccessful playing stint in the club’s history. The German played just one game for the club, a 6-2 New Year’s Day thrashing by Dundee United.
With Kyle Letheren returning to fitness following a thigh injury to challenge Scott Bain for the gloves, Schenk has now been released.
A Dundee statement read: “Goalkeeper Arvid Schenk has this morning left the club at the end of his contract. We would like to wish Arvid all the best for the future and thank him for his efforts while at Dens.”
Paul Hartley, the Dundee manager, believes Thomas Konrad is ready to perform again after a well-earned rest.
The German has been taken out of the defensive line recently but is in contention to return against Hamilton after an injury to Iain Davidson.
Hartley said: “In the main, he has done really well but I just felt he needed taken out of the team, to be fresh again and ready to go when he is required.”
