On Friday, 14th. February, 2014, Fulham FC announced the appointment of Felix Magath as First Team Manager at the Club, and with immediate effect.Magath had both successful playing and managerial careers, including scoring the winning goal for Hamburger SV in the 1983 European Cup Final (versus Juventus) and winning the Bundesliga title thrice (twice with Bayern Muenchen and once with VfL Wolfsburg).
Renowned (or notorious, depending on your point of view) for his intensive use of old-fashioned and uncompromising methods for improving the endurance and physical fitness of his players, Magath has a well-earned reputation in the Bundesliga for hauling clubs from the relegation mire.
On the evening of Tuesday, 18th. February, 2014, the Club announced officially the appointments of Tomas Oral as First Team Coach and Werner Leuthard as Conditioning Coach, both reporting to new First Team Manager Felix Magath, effective immediately. Simultaneously, it was stated that René Meulensteen, Alan Curbishley, Ray Wilkins, Mick Priest and Jonathan Hill had departed Fulham FC.
With only a dozen matches remaining in the current season and a crucial game due this Saturday against West Bromwich Albion FC, all Trust members and fans of Fulham FC are urged to give their full support to the team in the fight to remain in the Premier League.
