FC Schalke 04: questionable wunlung solution with Mike Büskens

He does it again: For the third time, Mike’s Büskens helps his FC Schalke 04 as an interim trainer out of the paw. In the successor search for the scored Dimitrios Grammozis, the “Eurofighter” of 1997 should have been the wunl solution, as Büskenss director Rouven Schröder stressed. A questionable statement from several reasons.

Mike Büskens enjoys the FC Schalke 04 a greatest trust. Hardly any other former professional of royal blue is equally appreciated by those responsible and loved by the fans as the former midfield worker.

The 53-year-old is on Schalke not least for one of the most successful times: in 1997 he won as a player the UEFA Cup, in the early 2000s he brought the DFB Cup to Gelsenkirchen twice.

He then remained faithful to his “S04, despite foreign coach engagements in Dusseldorf, Fürth and Vienna.

Nonetheless, a long-term tranBüskens to the Schaf Coach leaned for Büsken always, although some opportunity to offer in view of the turbulent years.

Büskens had found his wundrop in the background. The “Schalker Hermann Gerland” quasi.

FC Schalke 04 refuses external solution

However, according to the Dimitrios Grammozis, the S04 managers managed to persuade the (temporary) change in the first row.

“That was not a point of view, but a development process. Talks were not led to emotional but factual level,” Büskenss director Rouven Schröder tried on Tuesday in a media round to draw a closed picture of the leadership rings.

The decision for Büskens had been “in full conviction”, so Schröder. Another candidate for succession of failed Grammozis did not exist.

And so Schröder’s statement was not contacted, none of the previously traded and currently available coaches – not Bruno Labbadia (last Hertha BSC), Friedhelm Funkel (most recently 1. FC Cologne) or Markus Gisdol (last Lok Moscow) and not Daniel Fark (most recently FK Krasnodar).

Biggest stall smell at FC Schalke 04

Instead, Schalke sets on the candidates with the greatest possible stall.

After his career end as a player, he learned the coacher profession at the Revierklub, 2008 and 2009 for a few months as an interim solution in the Bundesliga at the sideline. Subsequently, Büskens back into the second row, as it is planned this time.

His biggest advantage over an external solution is the proximity to the team. Schröder let’s looking through that Büskens’ qualities were given as a grammozis assistant and that the Schalke professionals can now benefit from its know-how.

No faster wüskens effect at FC Schalke 04

However, an immediate wüskens effect is not expected. Due to a corona infection, the new Schalke coach is currently in isolation, at least until the end of the current week. Assistant Matthias Kreutzer takes over the training line instead.

Although sphered Schalke’s hope, wüskens can sit on the bench on Sunday at the FC Ingolstadt (13:30).

In view of a gifted first week, the procedure of the Schalke Bosse still makes a little questionable, because a lot of time does not stay for the turnaround in the ascent race.

FC Schalke 04: came the grammozis release too late?

Nine lots are only off, six points separate Schalke from an ascent rank. Not a few in the environment therefore criticize that Grammozis release simply came too late.

Under the German-Greeks 2022 did not succeed beyond two games. Playfully, Schalke knew rarely convinced.

Convincing performances, such as the clear 5-0 victory against Erzgebirge Aue, mistaken the view of the obvious problems in the team, which in the second half only two times a game without contradictory supervised and in the offensive play extremely credited.

The youngest 3: 4 in the home game against Hansa Rostock was ultimately fatal to Grammozis. Likewise, however, the Magere 1: 2 against Fortuna Düsseldorf could give rise to rethinking.

Schröder preferred the less flattering discussion quickly for him. You will “know” on May 15, “if the coach change took place at the right time.

At the latest after the end of the season, it will also be clear whether the wunling solution Mike’s wüskens has proven itself for the mission.
