Finally hard-hitting plain text!
The Schalke crisis (11 games without a win, 4 points, 3:25 goals) escalates so dramatically that sports director Jochen Schneider (49) relentlessly raises the alarm.
► His devastating verdict on coach David Wagner (48) and the tumbling team after the 0: 1 against Bremen: “Our second half of the season and especially our performance since the game resumed (four bankruptcies / editor) are devastating.”
Schneider disassembles Schalke!
The desperate attempt to slow down the crash nightmare with increased pressure.
► Schneider ultimately demands: “We all, sports management, coaching team and team, have an urgent obligation to stop this terrifying negative run immediately. So we cannot and shouldn’t present ourselves as FC Schalke 04. “
► And his promise is also a threat: “We will draw the right conclusions from this crisis and make the necessary decisions in the summer. I am convinced that together with David Wagner we will see football again, which has distinguished us in the first half of the season. “
Schneider puts everyone and everything on the quality test bench.
► BILD knows: Players who do not behave totally professionally and who are 100 percent committed to Schalke get a big problem. Soulless mercenaries should go.
► Even the job guarantee for Wagner (contract until 2022) can expire quickly. The fact that he (contrary to other statements) dropped Markus Schubert (21) as number 1 and put Alexander Nübel (23 / free transfer to Bavaria in the summer) against Werder again in the cabin, which also weakened him.
If Wagner also loses the five remaining ghost games, Schalke could end the spook.
