Huntelaar delighted to play alongside Raul

New Schalke striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar is looking forward to playing with Raul once again.

Huntelaar and Raul worked together at Real Madrid. He told German newspaper Bild: "It's just great to play alongside him. We understand each other very well. Naturally Raul and I could become the new dream pairing in the Bundesliga. But we have to play together and only the coach will decide if that happens.''

After disappointing spells in Madrid and Milan after a prolific stint at Ajax, Huntelaar denied suggestions his career had taken a step back with a move to Schalke.

"No, Schalke is a top club playing in the Champions League. That was also important for me,'' he said. "In Milan, there were four strikers before Ibrahimovic arrived. Therefore it would have been difficult for me. And finally I will get to play again.''

Having arrived for a €13 million fee, the pressure is on Huntelaar to hit the ground running and he has already targeted the crunch derby against Borussia Dortmund on September 19.

"The fee is not a problem for me,'' he said. "It doesn't matter whether I am the most expensive signing or the cheapest, I must perform and do what is expected of me ... score goals, preferably in less than two weeks against Dortmund.

"I have heard what a hot derby it is. A goal in this this game and I will have arrived at Schalke.''
