The Bundesliga’s last-placed side Schalke have appointed former Bochum manager Thomas Reis as head coach, the club confirmed on Thursday.
“I am happy to work with a team again. The goal we have together is to stay in the league,” said Reis.
Schalke have just six points from 11 league matches and have been without a manager since sacking previous mentor Frank Kramer after a 5-1 German Cup loss against Hoffenheim in mid-October.
Bochum fired Reis after the side lost its first six matches to start the 2022-23 season, even though he had led them to promotion from the second division in the 2020-21 season.
Reis’ last game in charge of Bochum was a 3-1 defeat to Schalke, which remains his new club’s only win of the season so far.
He is expected to take charge of his first training session with the club from the city of Gelsenkirchen on Thursday before they host third-placed Freiburg on Sunday.
