Where does Chelsea 6-0 thrashing by Manchester City leave Maurizio Sarri? Chelsea appointed former Napoli manager Maurizio Sarri on a three-year deal in July 2018. Sarri had that familiar haunted look, one worn by sacked predecessors such as Luiz Felipe Scolari and Andre Villas-Boas

The Royal Blues finished second to Bayern Munich last season and amassed an impressive 63 points. However, this year things have taken a turn for the worse and Tedesco has failed to maintain the previous standards he set at the Veltins Arena.

Tedesco joined Schalke in June 2017 from second-tier side Erzgebirge Aue, whom he previously saved from relegation.

Stevens, his short-term replacement, is well known within the Gelsenkirchen club having previously managed them on two separate occasions, the first between 1996-2002 and the second coming in 2011 when he managed the side for 15 months.

Under Stevens’ reign, Schalke won the UEFA Cup in 1997 and four years later claimed the DFB-Pokal.

His first job will be to get his side ready for the league clash with RB Leipzig before a two-week international break.

Should Stevens still be in charge when the players return, he faces a trip to Hannover before hosting Werder Bremen in the quarter-final of the DFB-Pokal.
