Würzburger Kickers: Magath comments on the quick separation from Antwerp

Leave of absence after 5 games

The Würzburger Kickers have had their third coach since September. After the commitment of Bernhard Trares and the separation from Marco Antwerp, Felix Magath took a position on the chaotic-looking conditions at the second division club. The 67-year-old also sent a tip to his ex-coach.

What, according to Magath, you first need to know about the Würzburg coaching history: “Michael Schiele was here three years earlier. That is an extraordinarily long time. The second choice of coach – yes, it went in the pants, “said Magath, football boss of the Würzburg sponsor (Flyeralarm) of the” Bild “newspaper. This second coach was Antwerp, who had previously left Eintracht Braunschweig with a lot of attention. About the trainer on leave, Magath said: “If I had lost four times and drawn once, I would have said to my boss: I’d rather go.”

In Magath’s opinion, small clubs like Würzburg would have had a particularly difficult time, especially since Würzburg had to “manage” “an unexpected rise”. The Kickers parted from Antwerp on Monday after only 41 days, which Schiele had only replaced at the end of September.

Magath jokes about Würzburg’s search for a coach: “Guardiola called”

For Magath, who himself was a long-time coach in the Bundesliga, it was not an option to put himself back on the bench: “That was and is not an issue. We now have the right one. “

When asked by the newspaper whether he, as a former coach, shouldn’t have a “better hand” when it comes to choosing a coach, Magath reacted ironsically. “When I’m looking for a coach for Bayern Munich, I have slightly different requirements than for the Würzburger Kickers,” said Magath and joked: “I also called Pep Guardiola. He told me that he couldn’t get out of his contract in Manchester (laughs).
