He also led Schalke 04 to semi-finals of UEFA cup in year 2005–06.[9] However, they were knocked out in the first round the following season.[10] He was given a lifeline when his side knocked out Primeira Liga Champions Porto 4–1 on penalties after a 1–1 draw on aggregate in the UEFA Champions League, but Schalke 04 were knocked out in the next round by Barcelona 2–0 on aggregate, and the final spell for him was a humiliating 5–1 defeat at the hands of title rival Werder Bremen.[11] On 13 April 2008, the club management of Schalke 04 released Slomka from his obligations after several weak performances of the team.[12] Slomka finished with a record of 55 wins, 27 draws, and 26 losses in 198 matches.[13]
