Berlin (AFP) – Schalke 04 and head coach Andre Breitenreiter will part company at the end of the season, both parties confirmed Saturday before their final match of the Bundesliga season at Hoffenheim.
“It’s my final match on the bench with Schalke,” Breitenreiter told Sky on Saturday after just a season in charge.
His contract was due to expire in June 2017.
The 42-year-old, who was Schalke’s ninth coach in the last decade, replaced Roberto di Matteo last June.
Breitenreiter’s successor has not been named, but Augsburg coach Markus Weinzierl has been tipped to take over at the Gelsenkirchen club next season.
Schalke have missed out on a Champions League place for next season.
The Royal Blues are on course for the Europa League, along with Hertha Berlin and Mainz, having started the weekend seventh in the table.
