Coach search: Schalke bosses are rethinking

After the separation from Frank Kramer, the search for a coach at FC Schalke has started. Unlike in the summer, S04 would now apparently make compromises and allow new assistant coaches.

When looking for a coach after promotion, one of the criteria at Schalke was that the head coach wanted was not allowed to bring his own appendages with him, but should fully rely on the existing coaching team. If you believe the various reports, this aspect was an important reason why many candidates canceled the Royal Blues and why an emergency solution - already called that at the time - was committed to Frank Kramer.

According to the kicker, this attitude at FC Schalke is "perceived as not very effective" in retrospect. The group of candidates, which was already small due to the financial bottlenecks, was further restricted as a result.

Therefore, as the specialist magazine reports, the S04 bosses are now rethinking. With the newly launched search for a trainer, the aim is to loosen up the rigid attitude and also target candidates who would like to bring their own assistant trainer or analyst with them. This aspect is no longer an exclusion criterion, as was the case in the summer.

This in turn means that in addition to Kramer, there could be other personnel consequences for the S04 staff. "Our analysis also goes beyond the individual head coach. We will have to improve significantly in all areas in order to be able to achieve our major goal - staying up," Peter Knäbel had already indicated measures in the press release.

As of Wednesday afternoon, it is unclear who will be the new Schalke coach. The picture had reported that Thomas Reis, who had been released from VfL Bochum, was waiting for a call from the Royal Blues - according to kicker, however, it is currently the case that interim coaches Mike Büskens and Matthias Kreutzer will also look after the team in the basement duel against Hertha BSC on Sunday . But that doesn't mean a permanent comeback by Buyo.
