Former Chelsea and West Brom Albion manager Roberto Di Matteo has been appointed as the new head coach of the German club Schalke. Schalke have confirmed the dismissal of Jens Keller as their head coach after a rather disappointing start to their season and announced the appointment of Roberto Di Matteo as his successor with immediate effect.

 

 

Jen’s job had come under intense scrutiny after a dismal start to the 2014-15 season which saw the team falter in the the first round in the DFB-Pokal, to a relatively unknown club named Dynamo Dresden. Though a Champions League draw away to Chelsea lifted spirits in Gelsenkirchen and back-to-back wins over Werder Bremen and rivals Borussia Dortmund had sort of eased the pressure on the 43-year-old. 

But with Schalke struggling in the Bundesliga lying at the 11th position in the league table adding to the fact that they have picked up just eight points from seven matches did not help Jens Keller’s cause and got the appointment of Roberto Di Matteo a major push. 

Roberto Di Matteo has been without a managerial job since November 2012 when he was sacked by Chelsea following a run of poor results. However, just the season before, after taking over from Andre Villas-Boas, the Italian tactician had led Chelsea to Champions League and FA Cup triumphs.
