Bundesliga giants confirm Italian as new gaffer.
German side Schalke have confirmed that former Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo as their new manager.
The 44-year-old Champions League winner replaces Jens Keller at the helm following the club’s inconsistent start to the campaign.
Schalke are 11th in the league with eight points from seven games, having won just twice.
They also sit third in their Champions League group, though they did manage to hold Chelsea to a 1-1 draw at Stamford Bridge. Di Matteo will of course have the reverse fixture to look forward to.
Schalke took to Twitter to confirm the appointment, which can be seen below.
