Slack Schalke infuriates Huntelaar

Klass-Jan Huntelaar has spoken of his frustration as Schalke succumbed to a shock 3-1 defeat at home to Freiburg.

The Royal Blues took the lead through Jefferson Farfan in the 20th minute but soon fell behind as two goals from Jan Rosenthal and another from Jonathan Schmid saw Freiburg claim victory and climb above the hosts to fifth in the Bundesliga table.

Huntelaar himself was controversially sent off after receiving a second yellow for throwing an arm towards an opponent and was clearly unhappy with the way his side performed.

“We have done far too little. If you create so many chances, you shouldn’t lose,” he said.

“The cup match next Tuesday against Mainz is very important to us. It will not be easy, but we want to win.”

In the wake of this result, which means Schalke have picked up just two points in the past six league games, manager Huub Stevens was sacked on Sunday.

Schalke sit in seventh with 25 points from their 17 fixtures, while Huntelaar has scored five times in the Bundesliga this season.
