Schumacher signs for Modena - but won't play
Modena plays at a much higher level than FC Echichens but it seems that Schumacher is unlikely to play much at the Alberto Braglia Stadium in Modena, except in the occasional friendly game. Schumacher, who likes to play football to keep fit, cannot afford to hurt himself and so will not be playing in the league games.
For Modena, a club which has been in business since 1912, the signing of Schumacher is a nice public relations coup. The team has just been promoted from Italian Division B into Division A, having jumped from Division C last year.
