Felix Magath is to preserve Hertha BSC in the remaining games of the season in the football league before descent. Record National Player Lothar Matthäus is fully convinced of the coach qualities of the 68-year-old, but would also have approved another candidate.

Hertha Managing Director Fredi Bobic conjured up one of the most successful German coaches from the hat in Felix Magath, which should now bring the crisis Berliner again. And yet, as the successor of Tayfun Korkut, the solution also calls great doubters on the plan, Magath has not been active in the coaching business for years.

According to reports, the former Munich and Wolfsburg Meistercoach was not the only candidate. According to the “Kicker” Bobic has been using possible options for several weeks in the background. Thus, among other things, the name Friedhelm Funkel should have been discussed on the Spree, among other things, even talks should have taken place.

More about it: Flop or savior? Two opinions on the magath return

If it goes to “Sky” expert Lothar Matthew would be the 68-year-old, who had preserved the 1st FC Cologne at the end of the past season before the descent, quite a suitable man for the job at Hertha. “I would have felt the idea with Friedhelm Funkel also quite comprehensible. I believe Hertha BSC now needs such a coach, who is not talking about it, but it manages to make a unity from individualists,” says Matthew.

Matthew is looking forward to Magath’s performances at Hertha BSC

Ultimately, Hertha in Magath has opted for a coach, who is also known for a clear line and who also “to rigorous means” intervenes. Because, as Matthäus formulates: “The time of the Schöntererei is over in Berlin now. That was far too long anyway.”

Currently, the Hertha does not appear as a team, the 60-year-old. Therefore, Magath would now have to find “his first 13 or 14 regular players”. In addition, finally leaders would have to crystallize.

Matthäus is already looking forward to the coming weeks, in which Magath is active in the Bundesliga: “The appearances of Felix Magath in front of the camera are often a pleasure and anything but boring and arbitrary. And in most cases his teams play too really good football. I’m curious if he creates it and press him from the heart the thumbs up. Magath and the club deserves it. It is not lost yet. “

Therefore, Matthew is convinced that Magath is the right man at the sideline: “Felix Magath is not any former German player or coach, but one of the most successful ever. He knows how to win.”
