Schalke sack Di Matteo
26 May 2015, 12:16
Berlin - Schalke 04 have parted company with coach Roberto di Matteo, according to a report by magazine Sport Bild on Sunday, after just two wins in their last ten games.
Di Matteo has been in charge since October after his predecessor Jens Keller was sacked, but Saturday's 2-0 defeat at home to strugglers Hamburg looks to have been the last straw for Schalke's board.
The 44-year-old, who coached Chelsea to the 2012 Champions League title, had steered the Royal Blues up from 11th when he took charge to third in the table in February.
But a poor run of results saw them surrender a direct spot in the Champions League and their latest defeat left them sixth in the table and in the Europa League next season.
