Belgium international midfielder Marc Wilmots could soon be on his way out of Schalke after failing to command a regular first team place at the Bundesliga club.
The 33-year-old, who captained Belgium at last summer’s World Cup finals, has been a fixture on the substitutes bench since the arrival of coach Frank Neubarth at the club.
According to an interview in Kicker Wilmots said: “I could move abroad immediately, back to Belgium in the winter break, or see out my last year here at Schalke.
“Anything is possible at themoment and I have to have a good think about my future,’ he added. ‘Something could happen quickly however. “
If I decide to leave, then I can do so with my head held high,” added Belgium’s 2002 World Cup captain, who said that he would discuss his future with his family over the coming days.
Meanwhile, Schalke general manager Rudi Assauer, hardly boosted Wilmots confidence when he stated: ‘If he’s dissatisfied then he can go.”
