Clemens Tönnies's resignation from his office at Schalke 04 is one thing above all: correct. A comment by kicker reporter Toni Lieto.
Clemens Tönnies is not a resignation type - actually. However, the pressure on him recently became so great that even the mighty supervisory board boss could no longer do anything else than add this bang-and-miss chapter to his life's work.
Tönnies has made lucrative deals - but S04 has also done bear services
Tönnies has earned his time on Schalke - since 1994 on the supervisory board, since 2001 its chairman. He has helped the club several times financially and created lucrative deals like the one with main sponsor Gazprom, which, according to the current status, gives the miners up to 30 million euros annually.
Bielefeld ends cooperation with Tönnies

"Due to the current events, the DSC Arminia Bielefeld will not continue its advertising cooperation with the Tönnies company," the association said at the request of the Neue Westfälische. The advertising contract will expire at the end of this season.
He has also served Schalke all too often - as before the season with his racist saying. The way in which his three-month suspension by the Honorary Council came about was also extremely questionable. The fact that the 64-year-old has now come into focus nationwide due to the massive Corona outbreak in his meat company was not good for FC Schalke 04's image.
The successor question is not just about the pure post
Tönnies has been the face of FC Schalke for many years. A quarrelsome, assertive, robust power man. His resignation is consistent, his decision is correct. Without alternative. Also with a view to the spin-off sought by Schalke, which is now a little more likely again.
The big question is: who should replace tonnies? It is not a question of the pure post of the future chairman of the supervisory board. It is about how the new person fulfills this role. He has to be a strong personality. One with an orderly hand. On Schalke even more than anywhere else, especially in these times.

In a slaughterhouse of the Tönnies company, 415 employees became infected, as a result all schools and daycare centers in the Gütersloh district are closed. The company is repentant - and speculates about the cause.
