Schalke suspend Nabil Bentaleb and Amine Harit

Bundesliga side Schalke tonight confirm that midfield duo Nabil Bentaleb and Amine Harit will train individually and the contract of striker Vedad Ibisević will be dissolved on December 31.

According to Bild, Bentaleb and Harit have all been suspended until further notice whilst Schalke sporting director Jochen Schneider has also announced the departure of technical director Michael Reschke due to “different conceptions regarding the future of the club.”

Speaking about Bentaleb, Schneider said: “He is undisputedly an excellent footballer but Schalke and Bentaleb obviously don’t go together. There wasn’t one particular moment, it was a process. We will part ways by summer 2021 at the latest.”

Schneider also added that Harit could force his way back into the first team: “A few things happened last weekend that we didn’t like so Amine must reflect. He has great potential but has not been able to use it in the interests of our team in recent months.”

After being substituted after just 38 minutes vs Wolfsburg, Harit didn’t acknowledge head coach Manuel Baum.
