Wagner: Kenny brave to make Schalke move

Schalke manager David Wagner says Jonjoe Kenny deserves credit for making his move to Germany.

The Everton fullback has joined on a season-long loan.

Wagner told inews, "I think it's one of the best moves a young British player can make in Europe if he is not able to break through in his own team in the Premiership. To go to the Bundesliga, you have to be – and luckily Jonjoe is – very brave, because when you leave your home country and you leave your comfort zone you have to have a very strong character.

"Not every player is brave enough to make this decision and sometimes they are more keen on playing in the Championship, or even League One, because they can stay near [to home].

"For sure, from my point of view, if you have the chance to play in the Bundesliga for one or two seasons to develop your strengths – and to work on your weaknesses as well – it is one of the best places you can be."
