Schalke 04 announced today that their new manager will be Roberto Di Matteo. Yes that cool, level-headed, down-to-earth, Di Matteo who is very easy to like. This is Di Matteo's first venture into management since Chelsea let him go in 2012 and certainly it will be interesting to see how he transforms a Schalke side sitting 11th in the table. Certainly his managerial style can deliver Europa League football to the club, and I would expect to see Schalke to be higher up the table in a month or two's time. One thing is for sure, it will liven the Bundesliga and help deepen an already very competitive league.
