Schalke 04 have parted ways with manager David Wagner following the dismal start to the season, club confirmed on Sunday.
“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.”
Schalke also confirmed Wagner’s assistants Christoph Buhler and Frank Frohling would be leaving the club.
