Career Summary

Felix Magath became the first German to take charge of a Barclays Premier League team in February 2014, when he was appointed as first-team manager of Fulham.

The vastly experienced coach arrived in England after an illustrious career as a player and a manager in Germany. In his playing days, Magath spent 10 years with Hamburger SV, where he played alongside England forward Kevin Keegan, and he also played in West Germany’s defeat to Argentina in the 1986 FIFA World Cup final, before he decided to retire.

After hanging up his boots, Magath took up a number of roles in the backroom staff of Hamburg, before being named as manager in 1995. Having led his side to UEFA Cup qualification during his tenure, he then took over at FC Nurnberg and guided them to promotion to the Bundesliga at the first time of asking.

Spells at Werder Bremen and Eintracht Frankfurt followed, before he led VfB Stuttgart to second in the Bundesliga during a highly successful spell at the club. His efforts caught the eye of German giants Bayern Munich, who appointed him as manager in 2004 and won back-to-back League and Cup doubles under his stewardship.

In January 2007, Magath took over at VfL Wolfsburg and they managed to win their first ever Bundesliga title in the 2008/09 campaign under his management. Success also followed in a spell as Schalke manager, before he returned to Wolfsburg in his last post in Germany. He left the club in October 2012 and began his managerial career in England in February 2014, with Fulham bottom of the Premier League and looking to secure a 14th consecutive season in the English top-flight.
