Rangnick leaves Schalke post

Ralf Rangnick has left his position as Schalke coach due to health reasons.

Tonnies hopes Raul will stay on

Rangnick, 53, took charge of Schalke in March this year but, as he suffers with chronic fatigue syndrome, he has decided he can no longer continue in the job.

In a statement on the club's official website, he said: "After long and careful consideration, I have come to the conclusion that I need a break.

"Making the decision has been terribly difficult but my current energy levels are not enough to succeed and to push the club forward. This decision has been made in the best interests of the team and I wish them well for the rest of the season."

Schalke general manager Horst Heldt added: "The decision by Ralf Rangnick should be held in the highest esteem. We are also of the belief that health should always take precedence over all professional goals and challenges."

Prior to taking on the Schalke job, Rangnick had enjoyed a hugely successful four-and-a-half-year spell with Hoffenheim in which he took the club from the third tier to the top-flight. He resigned in January after defender Luiz Gustavo was sold to Bayern Munich without his consent.

Schalke currently lie ninth in the Bundesliga having taken nine points from their opening six games.
