Schalke 04 manager Felix Magath has decided to give his defender Rafinha a few days off.
The Brazilian right back gained a lot of publicity last week, when several media reported about a possible transfer to either Juventus or Bayern Munich.
On the clubÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s official website, Magath says he hopes that Rafinha can clear his head during the next few days.
“There has been a lot of publicity during the last days and I think this is the best for the player and the club. I think Rafinha can help us again when he has everything back in order again.“
Magath confirms there has been interest for the Brazilian international.
However, Schalke never received a serious offer: “It looked like clubs wanted to benefit from our financial situation but we only sell are players for the right price.“
