Ronnie Schwartz’s contract cancelled
This is harsh lesson for Thomas Sandgaard.
Ronnie Schwartz was openly courted by the owner, and eventually captured as our banner first signing in the January transfer window for a fee posted in the £500,000 range. Today Ronnie Schwartz has had his contract cancelled with 22 months remaining and has left the club.
At the end of the day some players work out and some don’t. Some come with high expectations, and some low, but Ronnie had a decent enough record previously to raise hopes. Let’s not kid ourselves but the Dane was foisted onto Gallen and Bowyer. SG declared later that ge had never heard of him, although LB did publicly say he was happy to have him on board, but what else was he to say, and after years of Duchatelet insanity would’ve just been happy witness cash exchange hands for a player that had played before.
Nonetheless the stats will tell us that neither Bowyer or Adkins rated Schwartz, and one conclusion is that for whatever reason he never impressed or inspired on the training field.
Schwartz started just 3 games, making 16 appearances in total and scored 1 goal. His penalty miss at Oxford wasn’t by any means the only reason why we missed out on the play-off’s, although if he’d had scored it then we would have finished above Oxford.
Before he came to the Addicks last winter he was frozen out of Midtjylland’s first team not playing at all that season. 32 now, I hope he and his family find the happiness they have clearly been striving.
