Today Schalke general manager Horst Help announced that the link between FC Schalke 04 and Jens Keller has been terminated.

"Due to the lack of results of the last season we decided to end our collaboration and we will be looking for a new head coach. We already have someone in mind, we only need to work out the contract details We hope that today we will finalise the deal."

Schalke 04: Today Schalke 04 announced the new head coach, he is a former international player, Jurgen Muller, born december 1970, FC Schalke is his biggest contract of his career. He managed only lower league clubs from Germany, he is realy unknown in the football world.

A source inside the club said that he has already met the players and said to them that a club like Schalke 04 should fight every year for the Bundesliga title with Bayern and Borussia and thats' what he expects from them.

Jurgen Muller has already started his work and attended his first training session where the new signings were present: Sidney Sam and Chupo-Moting.

A relatively succesful team in European football, semifinalists in the Champions League in 2011 and winners of the UEFA Cup in 2007.

FC Schalke 04 play their home games at Veltins Arena, one of the most modern stadiums in Germany and in Europe.
Good luck man !

It was a surprise to anyone when Horst Held announced today, in a press conference, the new signing of Schalke 04.

Press conference:

Held: I am pleased to announce that we have signed a new player, it's Keylor Navas, from Levante. We bought him for a fee of 6M euro and we hope that he will be a big bust for the team.

Press: What about a replacement for Farfan?

Held: At the moment we have Sam and Clemens on that position so we don't think that a replacement is needed.

Press: Are there going to be any other transfers?

Held: I realy can't tell you that at the moment, it's up to Jurgen Muller, he's the head coach, he works with them, if he needs any other players we will discus this with him.
Thank you for youre time today!

Sorry if i am making spelling mistakes, english writing is not one of my qualities. :)
Decent transfers, but I'd sign another RM if I were you, I don't think Clemens and Sam will be enough with your busy schedule
I would sign Allione for the RM spot,in a couple of years he will be fantastic
