Schalke midfielder Marco Hoeger returns ahead of season finale

Berlin: Schalke 04`s Marco Hoeger can return to training and will be available for their Bundesliga finale on Saturday against relegation-threatened Hamburg SV after club bosses lifted a suspension on the midfielder.

Hoeger was excluded from the squad over loyalty concerns last week after Schalke also released Kevin-Prince Boateng and Sidney Sam following a poor run of form after the winter break that had put their European hopes in jeopardy.

"Marco Hoeger can be part of the Royal Blues` squad for the last match day on Saturday," the club said in a statement on Tuesday.

"Following discussions between the midfielder and the sporting director on Monday, he can now return to training and matches."

Last week`s 1-0 victory over Paderborn ensured fifth-placed Schalke`s qualification for next season`s Europa League.

The narrow win secured a top-six finish while Hamburg face the prospect of a first-ever relegation even if they beat the Ruhr valley club, as they need results involving teams around them to go their way.
