Magath sacked by Wolfsburg

Wolfsburg have confirmed that manager Felix Magath has been sacked.

•  Magath keeps quiet
•  Magath encourages thirst

Magath, 59, came under fire after Wolfsburg's worst ever start to a Bundesliga season. In eight matches his side only picked up five points and scored two goals, equalling the league record held by Bochum.

The Bundesliga club confirmed the dismissal in a statement, as well as announcing that assistant coach Lorenz-Gunther Kostner would be in charge of the team for the weeeknd clash at Fortuna Dusseldorf.

"Felix Magath took the first step in explaining to the board of directors that the club has a predominant place in his heart,"' the statement read.

"He therefore offered to be relieved of his duties since he did not want the club to suffer.

"The board regrets that this situation has arisen, although both parties had tried everything in recent weeks to be successful.

"Since this did not succeed, this step has been agreed upon mutually. Lorenz-Gunther Kostner will take charge of the first team with immediate effect."

Magath won the Bundesliga title with Wolfsburg in 2009, before leaving for Schalke where despite reaching the Champions League quarter-final he was fired in March 2011. Schalke qualified for the semi-final before crashing out to Manchester United, and Magath returned to Wolfsburg.

He helped the club avoid relegation in 2011 after replacing Steve McClaren but failed to make any progress with the team, bringing in a total of 26 players, of whom only a couple became regular starters.

Earlier this season, Magath had come under attack for denying his players water after a run through the woods. Magath reportedly told his players: "You don't deserve more water than that after your performance [a 3-0 away defeat against Bayern Munich]."

He later claimed the bottles had fallen over and that his aim was "to launch a thinking process" and to help the team bond.
