Fortuna Düsseldorf coach Friedhelm Funkel feels convinced that Benito Raman will make his mark at Schalke 04.

Raman is fighting to nail down a starting berth at Schalke following his summer move from Fortuna, and Funkel is sure that the 24-year-old will eventually prove himself at Veltins-Arena.


"Benito will establish himself at Schalke, I'm convinced of that. He didn't always play for us in the beginning either. But Benito always worked hard during training. He's a player who always gives his full commitment," Funkel told Sport Bild.

Schalke paid €6,5 million to sign Raman from Fortuna Düsseldorf. The winger has scored two goals in five appearances for 'The Royal Blues' so far.
