Good news is rare for Schalke 04 this season. However, fans of the mining team, currently the Bundesliga's red lantern, have reason to rejoice: his great promise Matthew Hoppe extended his contract with the Gelsenkirchen team, which expires in the summer.

Your new contract will be valid until 2023, regardless of league membership. This means that even if Schalke were relegated, Hoppe's contract would still be valid. Hoppe's renewal is the next decisive step towards permanence after the club signed three new players this winter: Sead Kolasinac (Arsenal), Klaas-Jan Huntelaar (Ajax) and William (Wolfsburg) .

Hoppe moved to Germany from the American Barça academy in the summer of 2019, where he initially played for the Schalke U19 under Norbert Elgert, discoverer of stars such as Mesut Özil and Leroy Sané. In the Regionalliga West second team, the 19-year-old did not go beyond his role as a substitute and only scored one goal in 16 games.However, then-Schalke manager Manuel Baum promoted him to the pros at the end of November, where he made his Bundesliga debut against Gladbach. Since then, Hoppe has been Schalke's new hope. In early January, he scored a hat-trick in a 4-0 win against TSG Hoffenheim, giving Schalke their first win in 30 games. He also scored in the next two games, against Eintracht Frankfurt and Cologne, and is clearly the most dangerous attacker in S04 with five goals so far this season.
