Schalke have sacked manager David Wagner after his side conceded 11 goals in their opening two games of the 2020/21 Bundesliga campaign.
Schalke were thrashed 8-0 by last season’s champions Bayern Munich in their first game last weekend and suffered a 3-1 loss against Werder Bremen on Saturday.
“We had all hoped that we could improve on the pitch together with David Wagner,” Schalke sports director Jochen Schneider said.
“Unfortunately, we haven’t seen the right performances and results from the first two games… for this to happen.
“We have therefore decided to make a fresh start. Despite the disappointing results, this wasn’t an easy decision for us to make.”
