Felix Magath is intended to bring the relegate-threatened football Bundesliga club Hertha BSC again. Krasimir Balakov, his former companion at the VFB Stuttgart, dares the coach this mum task.
“Felix Magath is the only one who can master such a hammer task,” Balakov said in an interview with the “kicker” clear and supplemented: “Who else would be such a job at all? Of course, there are no guarantees. But if someone does the Hertha Can save, then he. “
Balakov and Magath worked together from 2001 to 2004 at VFB Stuttgart, the Bulgare was associated with his active career co-trainer under Magath and later to the chef coach at various clubs.
Hertha could benefited in the relegation battle especially by Magaths “Decades of Experience”. “He experienced pretty much everything and knows what now matters now. Maximum professionalism is the key. And for that he will worry,” Balakov is sure.
For athletic success, finally “order, discipline, guidance and concentrated work are the cornerstones”. “Who does not want to make this investment, will fail on the way to the top,” Balakov warned, “Felix shows everyone this way. He who follows him is rewarded.”
Then the players at Hertha BSC “not hard”
Players who are willing to bring their performance under Magath “not difficult,” the 55-year-old highlighted. “His claims are high, but thus automatically lift the level of each player. If the player wants that too,” says Balakov.
Magath was surprisingly presented on Sunday as successor to the luckless Tayfun corkut in Berlin. Eight games remain to prevent the course in the second league with the capital club. “In such an extremely heavy situation, everything has to be subordinate to football and success,” said Balakov.
