According to Sky and Sport1 reports, Schalke have contacted free-agent coach Vladimir Petkovic about their open managerial position.
Petkovic coached the Swiss national team from 2014 to 2021, notably reaching the quarter-finals of the Euros in 2021. He then joined French side Bordeaux and was sacked less than a season into the job.
The current free-agent manager joins former Bochum trainer Thomas Reis as the current likeliest candidates for the position.
