Official | Schalke appoint Jochen Schneider as Head of Sport

Schalke 04 have appointed RB Leipzig’s Jochen Schneider as their Head of Sport following the resignation of sporting director Christian Heidel.

His first role will be to appoint a successor to Heidel, who will leave Schalke at the end of the season, unless they find a replacement earlier.

“To take this role at FC Schalke 04 is a huge honour, but also a massive challenge. There’s something special about Schalke, which can be seen in the Ruhr area and the rest of Germany too. It’s clear that there is a lot of work to be done because of the current situation. Nevertheless, I’m still excited to be working with this club in the future,” said Schneider.
