Bundesliga relegated Schalke 04 wants to go into the next season in the lower house of football despite the poor record with coach Dimitrios Grammozis.
“We definitely have the firm intention of going into the new season with Grammozis,” said sports director Peter Knäbel on Sunday Sky90. “He’s an excellent professional and trainer. “
On Saturday the Royal Blues lost 4-2 at TSG Hoffenheim despite a 2-0 break lead. Nevertheless, Knäbel demanded patience: “When we signed him, we knew how difficult the task was. We also had to take something with us that was not to be expected. When we think of the riots after the game in Bielefeld. That was another five days Training interruption. “
The start was made even more difficult for Grammozis. According to Knäbel, “the quality that the coach undoubtedly has in a different light”. In addition, Knäbel did not want to make a direct return to the table as a clear goal: “I think we can only say that when the transfer market is over. When we have made our decisions and think we have enough arguments.” Nevertheless, it is “very clear that we have the ambitions”.
