Gelsenkirchen (dpa) - After Ralf Rangnick's rejection of FC Schalke 04, supervisory board member Stefan Gesenhues has allegedly resigned.

«I no longer see any successful collaboration.

There is no longer any prospect of getting involved in the way I would have liked.

I communicated my decision on Sunday morning, "said the 66-year-old at Sport1.

The club was not yet aware of this.

Gesenhues had mediated between the Supervisory Board and a group of representatives from business and politics in the past few days.

This group had put massive pressure on the supervisory board and called for Rangnick to join the board as a sports director.

In fact, supervisory board chairman Jens Buchta had started talks with Rangnicks advisor.

A few hours before the Schalke 0: 3 on Saturday evening against Borussia Mönchengladbach, Rangnick had canceled.
