The traditional club from the Ruhr region is also threatened with a relegation battle in the second division. The professionals no longer trust their coach Thomas Reis, the coffers are empty – their nerves are on edge.
The memorable TV appearance with which Timo Baumgartl put the second division club Schalke 04 in a state of excitement on Saturday evening had at least one positive side effect: the images of thrashing Schalke supporters after the 1:3 defeat at FC St. Pauli, who tried Attacking opposing fans and injuring several stewards were just a side story. These scenes could also have been a good illustration of the bad mood within the Bundesliga relegated team, but in this case the words that Baumgartl formulated were stronger than the images of violence.
The defender gave an interview to the TV channel Sky on Saturday evening, as a result of which the reputation of coach Thomas Reis was seriously damaged. “Sometimes we run after men, there are positions on top of each other, there is no compactness,” said Baumgartl, who is well acquainted with crises in traditional clubs.
