Rolf Fringer warns Roberto Di Matteo that managing in Germany would not be right for him.

Former Switzerland coach Rolf Fringer has warned Roberto Di Matteo that German football would not suit his management style.

The former Chelsea boss, who has been out of work since leaving Stamford Bridge in November 2012, has recently been linked with the managerial post at Schalke 04.

However Fringer, who managed Di Matteo as a player at Swiss club FC Schaffhausen, believes that a move to Germany would not be right for him.

"I can assure all German clubs - if he comes to Germany, he will not suit this type of football," Fringer told

"I do think that he could help Schalke. But, I'm not convinced that he would pass [the opportunity].

"There are just clubs who always want too much and destroy everything with it, like Schalke. He is far too sensible and he knows that he could be put on the ejection seat. I do not think he would do it."

Di Matteo won the FA Cup and Champions League with Chelsea last season.
