Cult player Gerald Asamoah has revealed why the new head coach David Wagner fits in so well with the football league FC Schalke 04.
“If David Wagner has made of Schalke within a very overlooked period, gree deserves credit. It was fundamentally important that he wasn’t afraid to look for the stalk with Huub Stevens,” Asamoah said in a guest post in the “kicker”.
The Gelsenkircheners saved in the season to come only on the 33rd day of the season, trump konigsblau again this season and tr’umt from the rack return to the European business. For the half-series, S04 is on the fifth and only slightly behind the German champions FC Bayern Munich and the arch-rival Borussia Dortmund.
The fact that Wagner chose the way of communication with Schalke’s coaching legend Huub Stevens was highly reckoned with by ex-national player Asamoah: “Huub has ruthlessly put all the cards on the table – for the benefit of FC Schalke 04. And David Wagner has been able to accept the ratsklége and hints to draw the right slip. We also now see a team that is extremely fit and that likes to go back to curable limits.”
Harit as the best example of Schalker’s turnaround
The 41-year-old has been on the interim from Murz to May as a co-trainer Mike B’skens under Huub Stevens. During this time, Asamoah found a divided team that was quickly relegated from the Bundesliga: “It’s no secret that it was wrong. It looked like it would take months to get everything back on track. But then everything quickly matched,” said the former Sturker.
In the course of the rapid development on Schalke, creative player Amine Harit is particularly stinging. The young Moroccan is an example of a new self-confidence of the S04 pros: “The players quickly realized that he has a clear line. And they credit him for trusting them.”
