US News Schalke coach Gross excludes his own resignation
HSV: Returnees make Thioune happy!
It was already clear to HSV coach Daniel Thioune at the end of last week that it would be a close affair. But today, Jeremy Dudziak , who was last missing due to an injury from the Aue game, trained with the team again. And Josha Vagnoman was able to get back into training.
coach Christian Gross has ruled out a resignation at FC Schalke 04. “No, I've never thought about that. No, no, ”the head coach of the bottom of the table in the Bundesliga answered a question on the Saturday before the game at VfB Stuttgart on Sky TV. The 66-year-old Swiss did not go into the content of the reports about a replacement allegedly demanded by several leading players. He would like more clarity, "if it was so," said Gross. He “basically expects the players to come to me directly if something bothers them”. This has "not happened" so far, according to Gross.
He doesn't regret that he started the job at Schalke as the fourth coach this season. “It's a huge challenge. I knew about the difficulty of the task, it's a huge challenge, ”said Gross. As long as it is mathematically possible, he continues to believe in relegation.

A club spokesman had rejected media reports on Saturday morning, according to which Schalke leaders are said to have demanded a new coach change after the derby, which was lost 4-0 against Borussia Dortmund. Sport1, the Funke media group and Sky reported on Friday that several players complained about Gross’s work and that sporting director Jochen Schneider should have been replaced. Schneider, who himself has to leave by the end of the season at the latest, refused to do this.
Schalke's licensed player boss Riether did not answer the question of whether players had come to him and asked for a new coach, not specifically in terms of content. It is like that, "that basically always players come to me, and I also come to the players," said Riether also on Sky. "I will certainly not say here what exactly happened in the talks."
