Ex-Schalke boss Clemens Tönnies probably does not want to become an honorary member at FC Schalke 04. According to a report by Ruhr Nachrichten, the 65-year-old does not want to bring any unrest to the club that is currently at the top of the table of the 2nd Bundesliga.
Accordingly, he contacted Manfred Nentwich, who submitted a corresponding application to the Supervisory Board. Nentwich, member of FC Schalke 04, withdrew it at the request of Tönnies.
"We have Clemens Tönnies with his support and commitment the Veltins-Arena, the Knappsschmiede and the entire Berger Feld, to name a lot," wrote the fan. The Supervisory Board is said to have already approved the application. Because Tönnies does not want that, it will not happen for the time being.

Above all, he wanted to save the club a bigger discussion about himself. In his 20-year job at Schalke, Tönnies made some mistakes and scandals. Among other things, he has been criticized in the recent past because of racist statements. After the Gazprom-out, he offered Schalke to expand the sponsorship of his meat empire. Schalke refused.
