Schalke 04 had a nightmare opener to the Bundesliga season with their 8-0 defeat by FC Bayern. Last season the club struggled too, missing out on Europe with a disappointing 12th spot.

Manager David Wagner is in the hot seat. And he may find himself jumping out of the frying pan into the fire - Schalke's financial situation is reported to be grim.

This week we cast the spotlight on Schalke 04.
