Who is Schalke’s manager?

Manuel Baum was born on the 30th August 1979 in Landshut, Germany. He began his youth career in football with 1860 Munich in 1985 at the age of 6 and was highly regarded in the Goalkeeper department with lots and lots of potential. However, throughout the next 13 years he did not physically develop as most goalkeepers were thought to be and at adult age, he was only 5ft 8 inches. This would prove to hinder his ability to go on a professional at the top of the game.

At the age of 19, he left 1860 Munich, who were then in the Bundesliga without making a single 1st team appearance. He joined the senior team of FC Ismaning in the lower divisions of Germany. After 8 years and hundreds of games played, he left to join FC Unterfohring where he played for two years before retiring as a player in 2008.

During his time at FC Unterfohring, he was also a player/ manager and so he continued at Unterfohring past his playing career to stay as full-time manager. After 3 years here, he joined FT Starnberg, but he only spent a couple of years there. He had impressed and at this point he was only 35, which led SpVgg Unterhaching to take a gamble on him, but unfortunately this did not pay off and Baum and Unterhaching parted ways just 8 league games after joining.

He then took a step up to join Augsburg’s II team which was a huge leap in quality, and this will most definitely have improved his recognition in the managerial side. Meanwhile, Augsburg had a poor season in the Bundesliga and so the pressure was on Dirk Schuster to impress in the 2016-17 season otherwise he would be sacked. Results proved to be very poor and just 4 months into December on the 14th day, he was relieved from his duties. Baum was brought in as caretaker manager, but after some positive results, he was promoted to have the job permanently and he had the job to settle the team back into rhythm, to ensure they remained a Bundesliga side.

At the end of the 1st season, he ensured Augsburg to finish in a successful 13th place, after Baum completely turned the form around. In the second season, he slightly improved the side as they finished one place better in 12th place; in the 2018-19 season, Augsburg started of poorly and so was sacked. He was not out of football long though because just weeks later he took charge of the Germany U20 side and in his 1st 5 games won 4 and lost 1.

On the 26th of September, Schalke 04 sacked manager David Wagner after the 1st two games as they scored one goal and conceded 11, this was also down to a horrific run of form in the previous campaign. On September the 30th, Baum was appointed manager of Schalke 04 and now has a very tough task as the team he is going to endure has lost their talents in the summer and morale is at rock bottom.
