Schalke return is not an issue for Oliver Ruhnert

After Rouven Schröder's exit, Schalke 04 had to reassign the sporting director position. A dream of many fans: Oliver Ruhnert's S04 return. The Union Berlin manager sees neither the need nor the time for such a change.

Various people are currently taking on the tasks at Schalke that Rouven Schröder was responsible for as sporting director. If Peter Knäbel has his way, the position should be filled - if possible.

Oliver Ruhnert's return would be a dream for many fans. He has been with Union Berlin since 2017. Initially as chief scout and for a little over four years now as sports manager. He's a big part of the club's rise to the top and that it's where it is now.

The 50-year-old has a long history at Royal Blue. He was active at S04 for nine years: both as a scout and in the meantime as a coach of the second team and as head of the youth department.

But a return is not an issue for him. "Schalke - we've had this issue before - there was certainly an opportunity," he explained on Bild TV (via Sky). "I like this club, I will remain a member of this club until the end of my life, because somewhere there is a Schalke heart, just like a Union heart is there now."

"I love these clubs and I love the people there. It's not far from my home either," he said before formulating his refusal: "But in the end, now is not the time to discuss that or to strive for because I feel very comfortable here because there is no need."

Accordingly, the Gelsenkirchener will have to look for another sports director. The sports director of the current table leader is - not surprisingly - not available.
