Patrik Schick will not remember the 2022/23 season in the best way. He was out of form early on, then he got injured, and just when it looked like he was back, he was back on the sick list. It is now clear that we won’t see him on the pitch until the end of the season.
The 2021/22 season was the best of his career. Patrik Schick played an excellent ME and then caught on at the club where he surpassed even Erling Haaland, who is now breaking Premier League records with his goals.
He dug Leverkusen out of the Champions League, but he certainly didn’t expect a big drop-off to come soon. And not just his, but the whole team’s, as Bayer were playing on the rungs where they might have been worried about staying up.
Today, the situation is better from the club’s point of view, Leverkusen is fighting for European Cups, but it is not better for Schick. He is constantly plagued by injuries and we last saw him on the pitch briefly during March.
“Patrik has made some progress, but it is definitely not a breakthrough. He’sstill getting himself together and undergoing further treatment,” club CEO Simon Rolfes assessed Schick’s progress with his muscle injury to Kicker.
And now the Czech national footballer himself has come out with a statement, admitting that the season is unfortunately over for him.
“Unfortunately, the season is over for me, but we are working hard to get rid of the pain before the last league game and to be 100% ready for the next season. I wish my teammates the best for the rest of the matches, there is still a lot to achieve,” he wrote on his Instagram.
And he’s right. Bayer are currently sixth in the league and are also in the semi-finals of the Europa League, from which they can qualify for the Champions League with a win. So the goal is clear.
