News : Schalke 04 – Head of Marketing Jobst goes – Sport
FC Schalke 04 loses another board member. The previous head of marketing, Alexander Jobst, announced that he would be leaving for the summer. Because of anonymous hostility and threats to his family, he is resigning, said the 47-year-old – it had “crossed a line”. This means that within a year the fourth departure from the management level of the relegation-threatened Bundesliga club has been determined. Before Jobst, whose contract runs until 2024, CFO Peter Peters and supervisory board chairman Clemens Tönnies had already left the club in the crisis, and sports director Jochen Schneider was dismissed at the end of February. The power vacuum hits Schalke at the worst time: After a minus of 52 million euros in the 2020 financial year, the traditional club is in debt with 217 million euros and burdened with negative equity of more than 70 million euros. From a sporting point of view, the fall into the second division can hardly be prevented.
