Schalke star Benjamin Stambouli says the fans must take the positives from the current campaign following the draw with Stuttgart.

Die Konigsblauen endured a season to forget as they finished the Bundesliga season in 14th.

Huub Stevens’ men closed the term with a four-match unbeaten run but fans will be expecting another European challenge next season.

Schalke finished second in 2017/18 but despite being well off that pace, Stambouli claims there are still positives to take from this year.

He told the club’s official website: ‘It was a long season, that we can hopefully learn a lot from in order to come back stronger next time around.

When you go through such a tough time, it is always also an opportunity to gain experience.

‘It is important to give the body time to recover, then prepare well and start the new season strongly.

I am happy to be able to take a holiday, but I know myself and I know that I will want to be back out there playing again after four days at the most.’
