Schalke: What caused the Labbadia deal to fail at the last second

On Sunday, FC Schalke will be relegated to Hertha BSC. Interim coach Matthias Kreutzer will then sit on the bench, who is supposed to prevent the dramatic crash. Last Wednesday, the Royal Blues released Frank Kramer after less than half a year. Those responsible have not yet found a successor. There was a surprising cancellation from Bruno Labbadia.

Peter Knäbel and Rouven Schröder want to introduce a new coach to Schalke at the beginning of next week. Most recently, the clammy Revierklub received numerous cancellations. Among others by Bruno Labbadia, who was last in charge of tomorrow's opponent.

For the miners, however, the cancellation of the 56-year-old came as a surprise, as reported by the picture. Accordingly, Labbadia demanded a contract that went beyond the end of the season for both the first and second Bundesliga. However, Schalke did not want to give in to this demand, so that the negotiations failed at the last second.

Now the bosses of the crisis club are required. "We decide calmly and without hectic," said sports director Rouven Schröder, who probably wants to lure Austria's Christian Ilzer from Sturm Graz to the Ruhr area. However, the 45-year-old allegedly only has an exit clause of 300,000 euros for the summer of 2023, but a current transfer fee would be manageable in winter. But Ilzer would not be able to change until the World Cup break at the earliest. And Schalke can't wait that long.

Therefore, the chances of ex-Bochum coach Thomas Reis should have increased again. He then wants to bring his confidante Markus Gellhaus with him, also to establish himself against club legend Mike Büskens, who acts as assistant coach. According to information from the picture, however, there should still be talks. In addition, rice is now offered less salary than in the summer.
