RB Leipzig boss Oliver Mintzlaff has ruled out the chances of former RB Leipzig boss Ralf Rangnick from taking over the job at relegation-threatened Schalke 04.
The Leipzig boss granted an interview with Sky90, as he discussed the future of the super manager who could have landed a job at Italian Serie A side AC Milan last summer.
According to Mintzlaff, the struggling German side is not at the level of clubs currently eyeing Ralf at the moment, even though he also thinks he could still consider taking over the job.
“This is no longer the club that suits Ralf. Ralf has other clubs in mind and other clubs have him. He has achieved great things in recent years. And he needs an environment in which he can move freely. You need someone who fits the team now. ” revealed Oliver Mintzlaff as cited by RB live.

He also did not rule out Ralf’s return to Schalke 04 completely, even though he used to be a household name during the club’s glory days a few seasons ago.
The one-time Leipzig and Schalke 04 boss was linked with two Italian clubs. AC Milan, which could not materialize at the end.
He was also linked with the job at AS Roma, although talks emerged he was closer to announcing his arrival in Italy.
Now again, a return to Germany has been discussed by his former colleagues.
In Germany, the problem of Schalke continues to make the headlines even as the Royal blues sit at rock bottom of the 18-man Bundesliga table, losing games back-to-back, leading to the suspension of some key players like Vedad Ibisevic who joined the club as a free agent.
