"With Baum, we are equivalent to winning an absolute expert for Schalke 04. His team always has a clear structure and clear process on the court, which is vital to the current situation. "Sports and media director Schneider said, "We believe that Baum is very suitable for Schalke 04 in terms of character and professionalism. Therefore, we would like to thank the German Football Association for quickly approving Baum's resignation request."
Baum himself is happy to return to the Bundesliga: "Schalke 04 is a great club with unparalleled tradition and unlimited competitive potential. Our immediate task is to quickly bring the team a sense of accomplishment in training and competition. I Believe in the quality of our current lineup."
An old friend has a new mission: Nardo returns to Schalke 04 as a member of the coaching staff. The former central defender played for Royal Blue from 2016 to 2019 and played in 80 official games. His contract with Schalke 04 is also valid until June 30, 2022.
"Naldo has rich experience. He has over 500 official games. He is a valuable asset for the new coaching team." Schneider said, "He has known Schalke very well since his time as a player. The combination of character and athletics is for us. Very important. Nardo will bring a lot of positive energy to our locker room."
Brazilians with German nationality are also looking forward to their new roles. "It feels great to come back to Schalke. Everyone knows that I gave my heart here. I want to share what I have learned in my nearly 19 years of career as a member of the coaching staff. Come out and fully support Baum's work."
