A week later he was second youngest field player after Nuri Şahin to ever start a Bundesliga game. Schalke’s Julian Draxler has come under fire from his teammates for acting greedily on perhaps his side’s best scoring opportunity against Bayern Munich in their Bundesliga, with the match at 0-0 in the 50th minute, die Konigsblauen had a clear chance to score on the counterattack with Draxler on the break with teammates in tow.
“Julian could not get the ball under control. It was disappointing that we did not make more of it,” said Huntelaar.
On Wensday night, the young midfielder was injured Wednesday night in Schalke’s 2-2 draws against Montpellier in the Champions League. Draxler, 19, was taken to the hospital before the match was concluded with a suspected fractured forearm. Until the severity of the injury is known, it’s too early to know exactly how long he’ll be out of action.
