Fulham hoping for Magath magic

Felix Magath

Calm and sophisticated away from the pitch, Felix Magath is well-known for his temper on the sidelines

After picking up just 20 points from 26 games so far, club bosses at Fulham have turned to German manager Felix Magath to steer the west London club out of its crisis and out of the Premiership relegation zone. The 60-year-old former Germany international star has a CV full of success both as a player and a manager and has hardly ever been out of the Bundesliga headlines in recent seasons. Magath built a reputation early in his career of being the man to save struggling clubs from the drop, although his success often proved of a short-term nature. Championship title challenges with a very young team in Stuttgart from 2001 – 2004 earned him the chance to take over the reins at Bayern Munich where he led the club to two consecutive league and cup doubles. Perhaps Magath’s greatest achievement, however, was leading underdog VfL Wolfsburg to the Bundesliga title in 2009 after which he promptly left the club to take over at Schalke.

Always calm and sophisticated away from the pitch, Magath is well-known for his temper on the sidelines that has seen him clash with both officials and his own players over the years. He has nurtured a fearful reputation as a tough disciplinarian who is not afraid to drop star players from crucial games if he feels they are not prepared to give 100 percent to the job in hand. Fulham fans can look forward to their first taste of their new boss on the road at fellow strugglers West Bromwich on Saturday.
