Schalke coach Jens Keller says he has grown to live with speculation about his future amid reports he will be relieved of his duties before the winter break. Insecurity about his job is something Keller says he has had to deal with since the day he was appointed as Huub Stevens' replacement almost a year ago to the day. "Five times already I've been practically out of a job, when you listen to public opinion," he said to Sport Bild magazine. "Roberto Di Matteo, Armin Veh and Stefan Effenberg were all meant to replace me, but I've fought my way through. I have achieved plenty of objectives and I think I've taken my chance, but what happens in the winter is not up to me."
