Huub Stevens from the Netherlands leads his first training session as new head coach of Bundesliga soccer club FC Schalke 04 in Gelsenkirchen, Germany, Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2011.

Stevens follows former head coach Ralf Rangnick, who resigned last week because of suffering a burnout syndrome.Stevens, 57, previously coached Schalke from 1996 to 2002, becoming the club's longest-serving coach. He led the club to the UEFA Cup title in 1997, the German Cup in 2001 and 2002, and came agonizingly close to winning the league in 2001 when Bayern Munich snatched the title.
