Schalke suffer Hoogland setback

FC Schalke 04's young defender Tim Hoogland has been ruled out for six weeks after tearing a knee ligament.
FC Schalke 04 will begin their maiden UEFA Champions League campaign without Tim Hoogland after the defender was ruled out for six weeks with a torn knee ligament.

Three appearances
The 20-year-old suffered the setback playing for the club's second string against VfB Fichte Bielefeld last weekend. The injury is a blow for the German youngster, who made three Bundesliga appearances last season as Ralf Rangnick's side claimed second place behind FC Bayern München.

Six-week lay-off
Hoogland may now be unable to add to that statistic until the end of September, leaving him doubtful for Schalke's first two group games in the Champions League.
