Schalke captain Hoewedes to return to training next month

26 August 2015, 21:31

Berlin - Schalke 04 captain Benedikt Hoewedes is expected to return to team training next month after recovering from a serious ligament injury, coach Andre Breitenreiter said on Wednesday.

The Germany defender sustained a partial ligament tear in his left ankle back in May and has been working on his comeback with individual training sessions.

"Bene is on a good track," Breitenreiter told reporters. "Realistically speaking it will still take two or three weeks before he can train again with the team."

Initial hopes of the 27-year-old being ready for the start of the season were dashed due to a longer than expected recovery.

Schalke, who missed out on a Champions League spot last season, are in fourth place with four points from their opening two Bundesliga matches.
