Alexander Baumjohann's road to recovery

Berlin - Alexander Baumjohann's career at Hertha Berlin has been blighted by injury. As he slowly returns to full fitness, the attacking midfielder can look forward to a reunion with his former club, FC Schalke 04, on Matchday 9.

Baumjohann has not enjoyed the happiest time of his career at Hertha Berlin. Since joining the club in 2013, he has featured in only 15 games. Having ruptured his cruciate ligament twice in the last two years, the 28-year-old missed the entirety of last season.
