The Algerian midfielder Nabil Bentaleb has returned to Christian Gross’ team and is ready to feature in Schalke’s clash with Union Berlin on Saturday.

Bentaleb

had been out of favor due to disciplinary reasons since the end of November, but he returned to first-team training earlier this week as

Schalke

look to avoid relegation this season.

Now, he is ready to make his first appearance in months.

"I've got no previous history with Nabil. He's a good footballer. His integration this week has gone well, now it's up to him to force himself into the team,"

Gross told reporters at the pre-match press conference.

"He's glad to be back. He's worked hard on himself and will be in the squad - he may even start the game."

Gross also confirmed that

Suat Serdar

and

Timo Becker

are also available for the game.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar

,

Mark Uth

and

Salif Sané

, on the other hand, are all sidelined.
