FC Schalke 04 was expelled from the Bundesliga for the fourth time since 1981, 1983 and 1988. After 0: 1 (0: 0) in Armenia Peelfeld on Tuesday evening, the fall in the second division, which had been announced for several months, was finally right. For the remaining four match days, the flat bottom of the table can no longer hold the 15th spot. In 30 games so far, Schalke have scored just 13 points with two wins.
“It’s not happening today, it’s growing. It hurts a lot more. We mourn with our fans, our members and all the people loyal to Schalke 04,” said Sports Director Peter Noble:
However, FC Bayern are aiming for their 30th championship. After a 2-0 (2-0) win over Bayer Leverkusen, Munich have already reached their second RP. Ten points ahead of Leipzig, he lost 1: 2 (0-0) in the final. Eintracht Frankfurt beat FC Oxburg 2-0 (1-0).

The chaos continued into the current season. A total of five coaches failed to save Schalke. Current head coach Dimitrios Kramogis will now have to rebuild the Royal Blues in Division 2 and take them back to the Bundesliga.
The former Champions League permanent guest has a debt burden of 7 217 million. But CFO Christina Roll-Hammers did not see existential problems: “We can certainly form a competitive second division team that can play for promotion.”
The new sports director Noble will take care of it, and he will now reorganize the club based on the game as the successor to the unhappy Jochen Schneider. (dpa)
