Matteo new Schalke boss

Roberto Di Matteo is the new Schalke coach after the Bundesliga side acted quickly to replace outgoing boss Jens Keller yesterday morning.

The former Chelsea manager, who won the Champions League with the Blues in 2012, has been appointed to his first job since being dismissed by the Stamford Bridge club just under two years ago.

Di Matteo, who has signed a contract until 2017, inherits a side that are currently 11th in the German top flight, but Schalke’s director of sport Horst Heldt has backed the former Italy international to deliver.

“We are totally convinced that Roberto Di Matteo will stabilise the team and manage to reach our objectives in the Bundesliga and the Champions League,” Heldt said.
