According to the founding year of the club, the promotion team made its way through the crowd to the party truck, which was on the square in front of the arena. As soon as I got there, the party really started on Schalke: the royal blue let it crack for hours on Monday, and the master shell was kept in the crowd again and again. Several thousand fans, even around 20,000, cheered, sang and hopped what it did.
The promotion ceremony formed the worthy conclusion of a party marathon, which began 2-1 in Sandhausen (10,000 S04 fans, 2-1 winning gate by Simon Terodde in added time), a week later in the 3-2 promotion spectacle (after 0: 2-brewing behind) against FC St. Pauli reached his preliminary climax and, thanks to the 2-1 success in Nuremberg (Terodde, scored his 30th goal of the season) thanks to the 2-1 success in Nuremberg).
“The fans believe in us again,” said Gerald Asamoah, head of the license player department. Mike Büskens added: “It is nice for this city that we can experience such moments.” The Eurofighter has built a monument to Schalke with its fabulous interim coach record of eight wins from nine games, now he is moving back into the second row as a co-trainer.
Who will become the new trainer remains open
Whoever becomes the new head coach remains uncertain. A new player was also not presented as part of the promotion ceremony, nor did the club announced whether players will be preserved to the club, whose working papers actually end this summer.
For sports director Rouven Schröder, this Monday evening would have been “the wrong time”. Presenting a new one at the promotion ceremony or emphasizing an individual, the squad planner would have found the promotion collective.
Contract talks and of course the search for the future Schalke Bundesliga trainer will continue in the next few days. It is conceivable that the royal blue want to use the next big stage for one or the other presentation: On June 12th, the general meeting is on Schalke, and then the club again expects several thousand people.
