Schalke 04: The downhill run of a traditional club

FC Schalke 04 is one of the great traditional clubs in Germany. In the all-time league table of the Bundesliga, the Royal Blues occupy seventh place. The “Knappen” have been German champions seven times, the last time in 1958. Schalke won the DFB Cup five times, most recently in 2011.

A crazy turnaround for an ex-trainer of FC Schalke 04. After his dismissal, David Wagner found a job with the miners.

The choice of club, however, causes a big surprise. Many media assumed that it was the former Schalke-Coach would move to West Brom in England. Instead, he is now going to Switzerland.

More than six months later, David Wagner found a new job. But the final choice surprised. English media had unanimously reported that he was about to get involved with the Premier League relegated West Bromwich Albion.

But now it is clear that nothing will come of it. Young Boys Bern introduced him as their new coach on Thursday. With the Swiss, he should finally ensure success again.

“Those responsible at BSC Young Boys are very pleased that they have succeeded in signing David Wagner as the new coach,” said an official statement. The club will announce how long its contract will last at its official launch next Monday.

West Brom fans were not very enthusiastic about Wagner

The West Brom fans weren’t exactly thrilled by the fact that David Wagner was supposed to take over the “Baggies” anyway.

David Wagner actually has a good reputation in England. He led Huddersfield Town into the Premier League in his second year, then managed to stay relegated, but had to leave in 2019 after a series of blatant defeats.

In addition to the catastrophic time at FC Schalke 04, the way he got promoted with Huddersfield is a thorn in the side of the fans. With just 56 goals in 46 games and a goal difference of -2, Huddersfield finished fourth and finally only prevailed in the playoffs.

“Wagner – what the hell? Please do not”

We picked out a few reactions from the fans:

  • “Wagner’s Huddersfield team ended the playoffs with a goal difference of -2 and 58 goals in 46 games. Not to mention the terrible run on Schalke. Would be the worst and most unimaginative choice we could make “
  • “What a list of awards Wagner has. Promoted with a negative goal difference, part of one of the fastest first division relegations and 18 beautiful games without a win at Schalke. Well done, the owners are so scared of spending money that they’d rather hire this clown ”
  • “How can a man with his record be a serious candidate for a club that is aiming for promotion to the top division”
  • “Wagner – what the hell? Please do not”
  • “We really can’t get Wagner, he’s a failure.”

Instead of Wagner, some fans would rather see Frank Lampard or Chris Wilder as the successor to Sam Allardyce. (fs)
