Schalke star Streit 'shocked' by supporter abuse

Schalke midfielder Albert Streit has expressed his shock after coach Felix Magath defended fans who insulted him during a recent reserve match.

Streit was dropped from Schalke's first team by Magath after he claimed the player was not showing the right attitude in training, but on his first appearance for the reserves Streit was jeered and spat at by fans.

And Magath drove a further wedge between club and player on Monday when he revealed he could understand the supporters' anger.

The coach did at least condemn the actions of those who spat at the midfielder, but Streit admits the attitude of his coach has forced him to consider a move away from the Veltins-Arena.

"I really do not know what is happening to me at Schalke,'' Streit told the Express newspaper.

"I will have to speak with my agent and I will wait a few days before giving my opinion. I am shocked.''
