Schalke confirm Jens Keller stay

Schalke have confirmed that head coach Jens Keller will remain in charge going into the second half of the season.

Jens Keller has seen his position come under scrutiny in recent weeks.
Jens Keller has seen his position come under scrutiny in recent weeks.

Keller has seen his position come under scrutiny of late, and Schalke had announced last week that they would make a decision on his future following Saturday’s meeting with Nurnberg.

The 43-year-old did not travel to that game due to illness, and in his absence the Royal Blues drew 0-0 with a Nurnberg side that has made history by going the entire first half of the Bundesliga season without a victory.

That point leaves Schalke seventh in the table going into the winter break, outside the European qualification places but only four points behind fourth-placed Borussia Dortmund, and -- as had earlier been reported in the German press -- the club opted to keep faith with Keller.

A message on the club’s official Twitter account read: “We had constructive and open talks and analysed everything that needs to be improved,

“Jens Keller and the coaching staff will consequently work on that from Jan. 3 onwards, when we begin our preparations for the second half of the season.”

Keller has just completed a year in charge at Schalke, during which time they have won 23, drawn 10 and lost 15 competitive games.

They have endured extensive injury problems in recent months, with Netherlands striker Klaas-Jan Huntelaar having been out since August with a knee injury, while summer signing Kevin-Prince Boateng joined the absentee list before the weekend with a calf problem.

Schalke goalkeeper Ralf Fahrmann told the club’s official website: “Our squad is very strong and big enough to make up for the missing players, but it will be a problem if we have any more injuries.”
