Tonnie’s: “Hey! I’ll stay at home”

Supervisory Board Chairman Clemens Tonnies hopes that the members of the football league FC Schalke 04 will re-elect him to the Supervisory Board at the Annual General Assembly in June.

“I have the impression that the majority of the members are behind me. With this power I am working,”said the 62-year-old entrepreneur at the presentation of the Schalker Markt Foundation in the Happiness Campaign in Gelsenkirchen. If the members no longer want me, then I will stay at home.”
