Schalke 04 striker Mark Uth says he's a big fan of the club's home ground, Veltins-Arena.

The former Heerenveen striker claims he used to watch games at Veltins-Arena even before his move to Schalke from Hoffenheim in 2018.

"You don't have to think twice when a big club like Schalke come in for you. Even when I played in Holland, I came here now and again to watch a Bundesliga game. I sat there and thought, 'I want to play there'," Uth said in an interview with Schalke TV.

"This stadium has something very special about it. There are not many stadiums in Europe that are as loud and noisy as ours when the fans are at their best," he added.

Uth and Schalke face Paderborn away from home later today.
