Ralf Rangnick resigns from Schalke 04 due to health reasons.

Schalke 04 annouced today that Ralf Rangnick,the coach,has resigned due to health reasons. Ralf Rangnick is quoted as saying,”based on a burn out syndrome,i am not in a position to lead the team.” He also said, “after a long thought,i felt that i need a break.”

Rangnick took over from Felix Magath in March this year.

Schalke will hold a press conference to give further details later in the day.

After the death of Robert Enke, most clubs in the Bundesliga now take burn out symptoms seriously. I wish Ralf Rangnick all the best in his recovery.
