Almost a week ago Domenico Tedesco was released as head coach of the football league FC Schalke 04. On Wednesday, the coach returns to Gelsenkirchen to say goodbye.
As “Sport Bild” knows, Tedesco wants to ensure a reasonable end to his time at Schalke and to say goodbye personally to the employees at the office. The Ruhrgebiets Club had grown so dear to the 33-year-old that he had chosen this path.
The departure of his players had already taken place. On the one hand, Tedesco made phone calls to members of the team council. Among the young football teachers, Benjamin Stambouli, Guido Burgstaller and Daniel Caligiuri were among the young football instructors.

The other players of the professional cadre were reported to have received a WhatsApp message from Tedesco. The former coach has made it clear t hat he appreciated Schalke’s time very much and expressed his thanks for the last year and a half.
Tedesco himself has now withdrawn back to his home town of Stuttgart. From there he also followed the first game of the Schalker after his dismissal against RB Leipzig (0:1).
Interimstrainer Huub Stevens had made it clear in the run-up to the game that he wanted to maintain contact with Tedesco, who was supposed to have been very intense before.
