[.[views].], BY ClubCall
Schalke sports director Christian Heidel is adamant their is no panic in the Royal Blues camp despite their poor start to the season.
It has been a start to the campaign to forget for Schalke, who have lost their first three Bundesliga games under new manager Markus Weinzierl.
Schalke host Cologne in Gelsenkirchen in their next outing in the German top flight.
Heidel is not willing to press the panic button just yet but knows a win is needed to really kick-start their season under Weinzierl.
“Now we face Cologne under even more pressure and must turn them over,” said Heidel.
“Talk of unrest is being carried by the media, which is the way it always is at Schalke and we have to live with that.
“Internally, there is no unrest here.”
