Inconspicuous Huntelaar adapting to Schalke's new tune

The hallmark of a good hunter is his inconspicuousness and deadly precision. Blending in to the background, but lethal at just the right moment – those are also some of the attributes boasted by the one-time Bundesliga top goalscorer, Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.

Nicknamed 'The Hunter' for this very predatory instinct, it comes as no surprise that the Dutchman has netted 111 goals for the Royal Blues all said.

His return this season has not been so bountiful, however, with his new partnership with Franco Di Santo suffering from a few teething problems. With just two Bundesliga goals to his name, the 32-year-old is taking time to adjust not only to a new hunting partner, but also to a different system being played under new head coach Andre Breitenreiter.
