I never really did a regular schedule either. A young puppy should spend the vast majority of their day in the crate (I mean, they're asleep most of the day anyway so what's the difference?). Basically that's how it was for Minka and she'd also go in when I couldn't directly supervise her. It's never been a problem for her as it was always a place to sleep or chew on something and never was used as a punishment.
In my mind there's no harm in just doing your off days in a way that feels right to you. I'd argue that he needs to get used to your schedule. If weekends mean more time with you that's all the better for him, and if you stick to the schedule he won't know any different because that's life.

Correct bad behavior, don't redirect. Redirecting is rewarding, not resolving.
