Finally some good news at Schalke: Thomas Reis will become the new head coach of the Knappen despite the resignation of Rouven Schröder. Schalke is also said to have come to an agreement with VfL Bochum.
Negotiations between FC Schalke 04 and VfL Bochum about a fee for Thomas Reis have come to an end: according to Sportbuzzer, Schalke will pay the neighbor in the pot a performance-related fee of 500,000 euros. It is not known how high the base fee is. According to the report, Reis should already be in charge of training at Schalke on Thursday. The 49-year-old will then celebrate his debut as head coach of the Knappen on Sunday in the home game against SC Freiburg. Despite his dismissal in Bochum, Reis continued to have a valid contract with VfL until the end of the season. The employment relationship will now be terminated after the agreement with Schalke.
