Tedesco threatens the end: Schalke probably flirts with Schmidt

Sports director Christian Heidel has already resigned from FC Schalke 04 and thus drew the consequences from the sporting descent of the royal flowers, according to media reports Coach Domenico Tedesco could be next on the firing list. S04 is said to have a successor already at the Angel.

The noble 0:3 gossip on the last Bundesliga game day against the first. FSV Mainz is said to have cost Tedesco a large part of its remaining loan. This is reported by the “Sports Image”. Should Schalke next Saturday against Fortuna Dusseldorf (02.03., 15:30 am sport.de -LIVE-Ticker) does not succeed in the turn, the exit of the 33-year-old can hardly be averted.

Although he feels “unchanged” great support at FC Schalke, Tedesco explains to “Sport Bild”, but also realizes that an idea as against Mainz should not repeat. The brimborium about Heidel’s resignation, which also did not go by without a trace, should not be an excuse.” It would be too easy to take this as an alibi,”says the young trainer.

Group training makes Tedesco’s work at FC Schalke 04

According to the report Tedesco’s work at the buttons not necessarily easy at the moment. The team of switchboards is to be dominated by the formation of groupings, the important close cohesion in the descent struggle is not very pronounced.

In addition, one should already have a potential successor at Gelsenkirchen: Roger Schmidt could inherit Tedesco. The 51-year-old trained in Germany, among others Prussia Munster, SC Paderborn and Bayer Leverkusen, before moving to China in the summer 2017.

Schmidt’s contract with Beijing Guoan ends in December 2019, but an exit clause is intended to allow an early exit. Although Schmidt earns about eight million a year, a return to the big football stage should be quite charming.


More about it: Media: Schalke is targeting Bruno Labbadia


The rumors about Schmidt should be fired, Schalke should have made nails with heads and selected Jonas Boldt as the new cadre planner. The 37-year-old knows Schmidt travels from his time under the Bayer Cross and is said to have a “very good wire” to the former player. The Bruno Labbadia (currently VfL Wolfsburg) that was also traded is therefore less high in Boldt.
