Sam will get second Schalke chance – Breitenreiter

New Schalke manager Andre Breitenreiter has handed forward Sidney Sam a second chance at the Veltins-Arena, after holding talks with the Germany international.

The 27-year-old was suspended along with midfielder Kevin Prince-Boateng after a 2-0 German Bundesliga defeat at Koln in May.

At the time, Konigsblauen general manager Horst Heldt indicated that neither would play for the Gelsenkirchen outfit again, and Sam appeared to be set to join Eintracht Frankfurt earlier this month before failing a medical.

However, Breitenreiter has confirmed Sam is to return to training, telling the club’s official website: “Sidney Sam will be joining us on Thursday.

“He spoke with me last week. We had a long and intense conversation in which he has shown himself very insightful and humble.

“Sidney wants what he has not done well in the past, to make now much better and asked for a second chance.

“Ultimately we want to give him this opportunity. We have all made mistakes at some point. Horst Heldt has given his okay.”
