After the victory in Nuremberg, Schalke 04 celebrated the second division championship. But it is already clear that not all promotion heroes are ready for the first Bundesliga.

Mission relegation: Schalke 04 will return to the top division as champions of the second division. According to information from “Bild”, sports director Peter Knäbel and sports director Rouven Schröder are already planning for the mission to stay in the league, which will bring drastic changes.

Strike list: The first five departures for the new season are already known and more will follow as part of the restructuring of the squad. Even captain Danny Latza could probably no longer play for Schalke in the coming season. In addition to him, defensive veteran Marcin Kaminski and right-back Reihold Ranftl are also said to be on a possible list for the Bundesliga.

Money? Even if it is not yet known which further departures will follow, the topic of money is also in the foreground. In the course of the Bundesliga return, there will be a salary increase for the players. In order to be in good financial shape, Schalke would probably have to sell more players.
