New Trouble at Schalke: This is the district League level, if at all

FC Schalke 04 must make, again, an unwelcome discussion, and is trying to smooth the waters. On weekends, the termination of 24 employees of the car service took care of the Junior section before the game on Sunday evening against Bayer Leverkusen (1:1) for excitement. As a club spokeswoman confirmed, separates the sporty and a difficult time financially ailing club of the former drivers. An external service provider to do the work in the future. Previously, the "Westdeutsche Allgemeine Zeitung" reported on Saturday about it.

the speculation that Schalke was into such financial difficulties that the club should save in the case of a relatively small Post, countered the speaker, however. "The decision to award the car service, for economic and organizational reasons, externally, is like the beginning of the year," she said. The cancellations should be made at the end of the season, but "through the season's demolition at the juniors, and the setting of the training operation, it has moved forward," she said.

Fierce criticism, however, there was, among other things, by the adviser to the Schalke goalkeeper Alexander Nübel. Stefan Backs wrote on the website of his Agency: "The power of a little hope, that the Corona-crisis changes in the medium term, the professional football a little. And it also shows that some associations in the field of communications act at County League level. If at all.“

Backs resented the fact that players would lose in the Corona-crisis on salary, among other things, to protect actually less well-paid employees of the club in crisis. "You don't want to but that your money is misused," wrote Backs. "It shows the huge pressure faced by the managers of the clubs. To go to maximum financial risk in order to achieve sporty targets. For this you must then also believe the low-income earners in it.“

Schalke's Chairman of the works Council Martina Lenz described the measure as "socially irresponsible". In addition, the works Council had been informed too late. Most of the previous drivers, who bring the young players daily from different cities to practice and back again, worked for years as a Mini-Jobber for the club.

Schalke's sporting Director Jochen Schneider denied on Sunday on Sky these allegations. With each and every Individual had been spoken. "For every one of the depends 24, the existence of the Job, we will find social good solutions", said Schneider. The decision was a "corporate" and therefore "clearly correct". "There are two components. One is the business. Since it is more than acceptable to give to an external provider,“ Schneider said.
