Bundesliga side Schalke 04 have sacked head coach David Wagner.
Schalke lost their opening two matches of the 2020-21 season.
They were thrashed 8-0 by Bayern Munich in their first game last weekend and suffered a 3-1 loss against Werder Bremen on Saturday.
Wagner’s assistant coaches Christoph Bühler and Frank Fröhling have been placed on gardening leave.
“We had all hoped that we could improve on the pitch together with David Wagner. Unfortunately, we haven’t seen the right performances and results from the first two games of the season for this to happen,” explained Jochen Schneider, Head of Sport.
“We have therefore decided to make a fresh start. Despite the disappointing results, this wasn’t an easy decision for us to make. I would like to thank David Wagner, Christoph Bühler and Frank Fröhling, who, up until their departure, have done everything they can to get Schalke back on track.”
