FC Schalke 04: No return from Domenico Tedesco


After three competitive games in a row, there are increasing signs at FC Schalke 04 that coach Dimitrios Grammozis is no longer firmly in the saddle. There is already speculation about possible successor candidates. The return of Domenico Tedesco is probably not an issue. Is an ex-BVB coach an option instead?

FC Schalke 04 won four competitive games in a row in October and thus, for the first time since the horror season 2020/2021, stirred up a real atmosphere of optimism in the environment. Even the head coach Dimitrios Grammozis, who has been controversial since he took office, seemed to have appeased the skeptics and critics and finally found his path to success at Schalke.

But the 43-year-old has learned in the last two weeks at the latest how fast the football business is: after the embarrassing cup knockout at third division 1860 Munich (0: 1) and the bitter league bankruptcies in Heidenheim (0: 1) and against Darmstadt (2: 4) the Royal Blues are back in crisis mode – and the doubts about Grammozis are great again.

FC Schalke 04: Tedesco return not an issue?

Internally, despite the public backing from sports director Rouven Schröder, the future of the German-Greek will “definitely” be discussed again, the TV broadcaster “Sky” reported on Monday.

In various fan forums, ex-coach Domenico Tedesco is already being traded as the desired solution on the coaching chair.

“Sky” According to a return of the 36-year-old trainer to Gelsenkirchen is out of the question, although he has not been a club since he left Spartak Moscow last summer.

Ex-BVB coach could “theoretically” fit

Instead, “Sky” and England expert Raphael Honigstein brings another name into the conversation: Daniel Farke. The former U23 coach of BVB was only fired last weekend at Norwich City – after the first victory of the season in the Premier League, of all things.

Farke had previously done an excellent job with the Canaries for four years. Under his direction, he was promoted to the top English league twice.

“His team had a very clear game profile and played nice football. You could imagine that something like this would also work at Schalke – in theory,” said Honigstein.
