Huntelaar joined Schalke from Italian side AC Milan on summer transfer deadline day.
“It’s my objective to make sure Schalke are successful again. It’s a huge challenge for me to help the club to the Bundesliga title again after years without winning any titles,” Huntelaar was quoted as saying by reporters.
“However, I don’t want to be too optimistic right now. We have yet to collect our first point of the season after two games. The season has only just begun though and lots of things can still happen.”
“I want to score a lot of goals this season. I’d be more than happy if I manage to equal the number on the back of my jersey,” said Schalke’s No.25.
