The shock of Rouven Schröder's surprising exit from Schalke 04 is still deep. There doesn't seem to be a direct connection to RB Leipzig, as it was said on Thursday evening - at least not yet.
On Thursday evening, the picture connected Rouven Schröder with RB Leipzig. First and foremost through his connection to Max Eberl, who knows the sports director well, appreciates his work and with whom he also has a good relationship.
Hardly away from Schalke, straight to RBL? It will definitely not happen that quickly - if at all.
According to the picture, Eberl wants to build a team in Leipzig. He will start his new job there in mid-December, and the first personal details should be available a little later. According to the report, Schröder would be one of the candidates for this. Not only, but also because Eberl would like to bring him in.
On Twitter he wrote: "The fact that Mr. Schröder is leaving S04 to go to Leipzig is nonsense. [...] If Rouven were in the mood for Leipzig, he could have pursued it after the season. He is top, with character and professionalism ." The story does not become more realistic due to the connection to the former Gladbach manager, who had suggested him as his successor at Borussia.
For the time being, one must say. After all, Schäfer emphasizes that Schröder did not leave to change. On the one hand, that may be true, but on the other hand, it still does not rule out that he will later sign with the Saxons.
While the whole rumor seems to be cooked much hotter than actually eaten at the moment, it would be just as foolish to deny all connections. The possibility that Eberl, as sports manager, would like to install a sports director under himself remains. And in this case, the ex-Schalke player would be one of those who would at least ask.
