Apparently, Thomas Reis is again the top favorite for the coaching post at Schalke 04. The former Bochum player has been flushed up the rankings. A decision should be made by Monday.
Schalke lost again on Sunday evening - even without Frank Kramer. Although the team against Hertha BSC showed an increase in terms of will and commitment, especially in the first half, the structural deficits that should have been worked out in the pre-season are simply too big.
The next game will take place again in the local Veltins Arena and should also be led by the new coach.
And in the search for this, there seems to have been a backwards roll: In the meantime, the Bild, Sport1 and the WAZ unanimously report that Thomas Reis can now be seen as the favorite for the coaching position at Royal Blue again.
Even before the Hertha game, Peter Knäbel had declared that the contract talks with the new coach were in the final stages. The media reports match this: Accordingly, the final talks should take place on Monday.
It should be clarified with Reis until when his S04 contract runs and whether this also includes the 2nd Bundesliga. According to Bild, he should sign by 2024 and be able to take advantage of a slightly improved salary offer. A "rescuer bonus" will also apply, i.e. a bonus if the class is ultimately held. He will bring his assistant Markus Gellhaus with him.
The signing of the contract and the presentation should take place on Monday, or Tuesday at the latest. After all, Reis can then work with the team as quickly as possible.
