Peter Knäbel, Schalke’s head of sport, announced that he will not force the squad to play again this season.

The

Schalke 04

players were subjected to an attack by their supporters following their relegation in mid-week. An anonymous player revealed that he is not willing to feature again after the terrifying incident.

Given the circumstances,

Peter Knäbel

backs the players who would rather not play for the remainder of the season.

"I can live with all decisions, within the legal limits. First and foremost, it depends on how you react to something like this as a person. We have to see how the guys are doing,"

Knäbel told

Bild

.

"If someone doesn't want to play the remaining four games for Schalke, I can live with that position."

There are four games left for Schalke to play, with the first one being the clash against

Hoffenheim

on May 8. They will then take on

Hertha BSC

,

Eintracht Frankfurt

, and FC Koln on May 12, 15, and 22 consecutively.
