Schumacher family deeply touched by gesture before football match


Michael Schumacher’s family have been moved by a gesture made by Bundesliga clubs Cologne and Schalke ahead of their football match over the weekend.

Players from both teams held up and displayed a banner, before the match, with the message: “Get Well Soon! You can do it, Michael.”

The family wrote on the seven time World Champion’s website: “We are deeply touched by all the messages to get well soon for Michael, which still are being sent. That gives us strength. Thank you all so much!”

“Thank you to the Fanclub in Kerpen, to 1. FC Köln and Schalke 04 but also to everybody else and other fan groups who are supporting Michael. We all know, he is a fighter and will not give up!”

Schumacher has been in an induced coma in the Grenoble Hospital, all year thus far, since he fell and banged his head while skiing on 29 December. (GP247)
