Schalke has a new coach!
As expected, Dimitrios Grammozis (42) will be the new head coach for the Royal Blues. The ex-Bundesliga professional has signed a contract until June 30, 2022.
Grammozis is the fifth coach of the bottom of the table this season after David Wagner, Manuel Baum, Huub Stevens and Christian Gross.
Peter Knäbel, successor to sports director Jochen Schneider, who was released on Sunday with trainer Gross, on the new trainer: “We are convinced that with Dimitrios Grammozis we have found the right trainer for the last third of the season.”
The first Schalke game for Grammozis is the basement duel on Friday with the table penultimate FSV Mainz 05.
“I really feel like doing this job. I will use the short time until the first league game to get the fullest possible picture of the team with my coaching team – and of course we want to start with a win against Mainz, ”said Grammozis.
