In the first round of the Bundesliga, Schalke lost to Bayern Munich 0-8. Schalke's slump last season continues, and the Bundesliga won 17 rounds across the season. According to German media, Schalke will decide the future of coach Wagner after two games.
According to reports, after the downturn of last season, Schalke's senior management hoped to give Wagner a month in the new season to decide Wagner's future after the game with Dortmund in late October. However, because of Schalke's disastrous defeat in the first round of the new season, the senior management of Schalke will not give Wagner too much time, and will determine Wagner's future after the next two rounds against Bremen and Leipzig. If Schalke does not achieve good results in these two games, Wagner will be fired by Schalke.
According to previous news from the German media, the candidates for Schalke's new coach include former Belgian coach Wilmotz, former Leipzig coach Rangnick and former Mainz coach Schwartz.
