Mark Uth: I feel good again after my injury

Two months to the day after Mark Uth played his last game in a S04 shirt before picking up his injury, he is not set to make his comeback on Friday in a friendly against KRC Genk. “I feel good, everything is going to plan and I feel like I did before my injury,” said the Germany national team player.

“I’m just a little bit sore because I’ve had a couple weeks off before training again,” he said. Mark Uth had suffered hamstring injury and a tendon injury in his left thigh in the Bundesliga game at Eintracht Frankfurt. It stopped Uth from playing, just after he had started to find his rhythm. He had scored his first two goals for Schalke the week before.

Friendly against Genk will be like a competitive game

Uth has been satisfied with the work put in during training in Benidorm. “We train hard, work on tactics and want to improve,” said the striker. The 27-year-old thinks the preparation being put in for the game against VfL Wolfsburg, has been good.

The friendly against Genk will prove to be a stern test before Schalke 04 face Wolfsburg in the Bundesliga. The Belgian side are in the Europa League and currently top of the Belgian league. “I’m looking forward to the game against Genk,” said the striker. “A friendly is something different compared to a training session. As both teams are about to restart our seasons, we will both play as if it is a competitive game.”
