CAM Amine Harit

The absolute star man for Schalke, Wagner could be doing so much more to support Amine Harit, who is the only player in the attack who looks capable of trying anything positive. And he has no real options going forward to pass it to, which speaks volumes to how exploited this team has been tactically in the Rückrunde. Harit quietly drew three fouls, completed four dribbles, and set up two key passes, but he was also frequently dispossessed.

ST Michael Gregoritsch

That said, at least Harit was creating something despite being dispossessed. Michael Gregoritsch, on the other hand, lost the ball four times against Köln and had a lone key pass as his offensive contribution. That said, Gregoritsch needs to be in the starting XI right now, simply because Wagner still seems bafflingly reluctant to unleash Kutucu. He was amazing against Gladbach and has quality. He also seems determined to make an impact. Hopefully it clicks for him.

Next. The case for extending Stambouli. dark

ST Benito Raman

Like Amine Harit, Benito Raman is a legitimate star player for Die Knappen and needs to have a big month of March. It’s on the coaching staff to get more out of the Belgium international, who should be banging in goals. The hard-working forward matched Harit’s two key passes and added three dribbles of his own against Köln, doing his best to make something happen.
