FC Schalke 04 agree to terminate contract with Domenico Tedesco

The path is clear for a new challenge: FC Schalke 04 and former head coach Domenico Tedesco mutually agreed to terminate his contract on Monday (14/10). The contract was originally supposed to run until 30th June 2022.

The 34-year-old is now able to join Russian club Spartak Moscow. “We wish Dominico all the best and every success with his new challenge in Moscow,” said sporting director Jochen Schneider.

Domenico Tedesco took over the role of head coach at the club for the 2017/18 season. He led the Royal Blues to 2nd in the league and to the semi-finals of the DFB-Pokal. Last season, his team made it to the Champions League round of sixteen but were in danger of being relegated from the Bundesliga. Therefore, the club released the coach from his duties on 14th March 2019.
