The partially hot-guided discussions prior to the 2 ballots lasted almost 3 and a half hrs. The sale of 49.9 percent at the Barca Licensing and also Merchandising (BLM), which is scheduled to bring in 200 to 300 million euros, was initial authorized.

Barça between consolidation and also desired transfers

As is well understood, Robert Lewandowski, that is advertising his separation from FC Bayern, is likewise on the desire listing of the Catalans, who likewise rate of interests Rafael Leao (AC Milan), Bernardo Silva (Manchester City), Carlos Soler (FC Valencia) and Kolidou KoLibaly (SSC Naples). The last sees his future a lot more with his present club.

The laporta, which has remained in office because March 2021, had actually mixed the advertising drum for his tips and also claimed, amongst other things,: Barça was dead. Now we remain in the critical care unit. If these actions are approved, we will be released from the medical facility.


In order not to endanger the preferred renovation of finances, you desire to shorten player incomes at the exact same time and lower the salary mass by 160 to around 400 million euros a year. Players that earn a great deal and also have actually not struck in Barcelona are also said to have been sold so well.

With spectacle back to the BL: Schalkes success factors

In the pre -season, the royal blue did a lot wrong, almost everything – the descent that shaken the club in its foundations was logical. The responsible persons in the 2nd division managed to correct the operating accident. The club, many of which had feared a thoroughly through the 3rd league ten months ago, returns to the Bundesliga after only one year. Prematurely and deservedly. The 3: 2 against FC St. Pauli has been the most spectacular and emotional catch -up since the 4: 4 in the 2017 century derby. The list of success factors this season is long.

Kluge squad design: The builders of this team, above all sports director Rouven Schröder, have done outstanding people by making it a team from the ground with very low financial means and a high level of creativity (a number of complex loan contracts), which ultimately turned out to be balanced enough to attack at the top.

Several leaders: The upheaval after the descent was huge, the Schalke hit the absolute hit with several professionals. With defensive strategist Ko ItaKura and the standard specialist Thomas Ouwejan, feared, for example, but of course with Simon Terodde, double goal scorer against St. Pauli. For the fourth time the top scorer – nobody in the 2nd league has managed to do that.

Concentrated offensive power: Schalke 04 currently has the best offensive in the league with currently 70 goals, because not only Terodde is constantly being dangerous (now 29 goals, 7 templates), Marius Bülter is also a hardworking collector of scorer points (10 goals, 13 templates).

Basic defensive stability: If the royal blue hits had to take up, then I would also like to do it. They were given four goals four times – each from Regensburg and Bremen (both 1: 4) as well as Darmstadt (2: 4) and Rostock (3: 4). Otherwise, however, the defense was mostly strengthened, hardly any team conceded as few goals as FC Schalke (43).

Grown team spirit: After the disappointing start to the season with just four points from the first four games, the completely new team found itself very quickly. The cooperation grew steadily. Against St. Pauli it became clear that there is a unit on the pitch.

Change of coaching: With Dimitrios Grammozis, the bosses never really made happy, a rigid 3-5-2 system and controversial personnel decisions constantly caused discussion. With Mike Büskens, the club tip promoted the assistant coach to the head coach in March, the balance sheet speaks volumes: The 3-2 spectacle against St. Pauli was the seventh victory in the eighth game under Büskens. Grandios!

Strong final sprint: Only after the 29th matchday Schalke was on a direct promotion place for the first time this season, only after the 1: 4 against Bremen did we go down again, a week later but immediately again high. With the victory against St. Pauli, the club is very close to the second division championship.

Büskens effect: The Eurofighter lives and knows Schalke like no other, with his species he tears the club with him. The team did not overwhelm his decision to switch to four chains: on the contrary: several players who had previously remained under the expectations were received under Büsken’s wings, above all Rodrigo Zalazar, the 3-2 shooter shooter against St. Pauli.

Clear edge at Gazprom: Schalke showed attitude when the club was released from its long -time main sponsor after the invasion of Russian troops – the contract actually ran until 2025 and guaranteed almost 14 million euros in 2021/22 including ascent bonus. Even more: The royal blue could not only present a new jersey partner (Vivawest) quickly, but also caught the tart financial loss, among other things, through the innovative idea of marketing their training shirts (REWE).

Solid economic action: The financial situation is slowly relaxing, but the direction is right. The total liabilities of FC Schalke were 183.5 million euros on the deadline (December 31, 2021). And: The royal blue does not have to worry about the license for the 2022/23 Bundesliga season.

Praise management team: The people now acting have long since proven themselves as a team that is composed at the top of the pleasantly defensive CFO Christina Rühl-Hamers, the always prudent sports director Peter Knäbel and the sports director, who is also liking to perform Rouven Schröder. In addition, Bernd Schröder are in the newly created position of the CEO and the chairman of the supervisory board Axel Hefer. This duo almost never appears publicly. For Schalke standards, this calm is rather unusual on all levels, but the club Tas club is well on the way back to the Beletage.

Good communication: The Schalke often hit the right tones (humility in the first half of the season, increasingly significant ascent signals from the second half of the season) and generally prove a safe handling of difficult topics. Gazprom is an example, another the unrest-stimulating Gladbach rumors about sports director Schröder after the end of Max Eberl at Borussia. It was also important that Büskens ’future role (he moves back into the co-trainer team) from the start was important to suffocate speculations in this direction in the bud and thus avoid unrest.

FREENTIC audience: Measured against membership, FC Schalke 04 (around 160,000) behind FC Bayern with almost 300,000 and Benfica Lisbon with more than 200,000 are the third largest football club in the world. The fans are Schalke’s fowage, which once again demonstrated the impressive atmosphere when playing against St. Pauli. Without his fans in the stadium, Schalke rose in 2021, Schalke is now rising again with them.

Emotional bank: Not only Büskens sprays on the sidelines of passion, but also Schröder and Gerald Asamoah, head of the license player department. Many opponents find the behavior of the S04 bank rather unpleasant, but the Power trio Büskens, Schröder and Asamoah acts as a personalized stimulant for their own team. The opposite pole is the experienced and calm Peter Hermann, whom FC Schalke brought in at the end of March and clearly underpinned its promotion.

All of these factors have contributed to the fact that the Schalke could now reach the climb prematurely and thus avoid the very big nerve thriller on the final matchday with the friends of 1. FC Nürnberg. The royal blue deserves direct Bundesliga return through a lot of diligence, clever decisions and prudent action. Enjoying is now the order of the day. And then? Full of focus on the immense challenges to make the team for the 1st league.


Tuchel breathes on: Record take over Chelsea FC before graduation

Breathe off at the Stamford Bridge, a completely new perspective for Thomas Tuchel and his expensive stars: a billion -dollar deal at record height gives Chelsea brilliant prospects again. After weeks of fear, the top club from London now agreed with a new investor on the legacy of the previous club owner Roman Abramovich, the takeover of the Champions League winner is imminent.

If the British government and the Premier League take over the takeover by the group of investors around the US billionaire Todd Boehly, known in the clubs world, the fresh capital could flow in May. The contract signed according to English media reports has a financial volume of £ 4.25 billion (around 5 billion euros) – it is the highest amount that has ever been spent on a clubs club.

“The sale is expected to be completed at the end of May, subject to obtaining all necessary official permits,” says a club statement that was published early Saturday morning. Three consortia had recently made offers, the choice fell on the group around Boelyy, the difficult -rich co -owner of the American baseball team Los Angeles Dodgers.

According to the club, £ 2.5 billion (3 billion euros) of the money is to be transferred to a frozen account, the transactions of which are monitored by the British government. Above all, it should be ensured that the Russian oligarch Abramovich does not benefit personally when selling. Another £ 1.75 billion (2 billion euros) are to be invested directly in the club around the former Bundesliga coach Tuchel.

Due to the Russian war of attack against Ukraine, Abramovich’s assets (club owners since 2003) were recently frozen by Great Britain – Chelsea was thus presented with massive problems. The Londoners around the German international Kai Havertz, Timo Werner and Antonio Rüdiger lost their main sponsor and were recently only allowed to stay in the league thanks to a special license.

Tuchel optimistic

Already on Friday a turnaround emerged when Tuchel publicly hinted at the agreement with a new owner. “I heard that there is a preferred bidder and the matter is going well,” he said: “If the situation is clear, we are able to act and can make decisions.”

At the moment, the emphasized Tuchel, who led the club to the royal class triumph last year, was the association “in a passive role” and therefore in no good position. The coach sees that national player Antonio Rüdiger will leave the blues as a direct episode of the sanctions imposed against Abramovich.

The unclear situation is stressful for his players and has consequences for all planning. “We tried not to put the matter into focus if possible. But of course it is omnipresent,” said Tuchel.

Now he and his stars can breathe a sigh of relief.
