Magath future to be decided

The future of Schalke manager Felix Magath will be decided at a board meeting on Wednesday after he met with club president Clemens Tonnies.

Magath was summoned for talks with Tonnies after rumours surfaced that he had lost the support of the board.

After Sunday's ''constructive talk'', according to the club's website, both Magath and Tonnies have agreed to maintain their silence until Wednesday's meeting, when Magath will attempt to convince the board to back him.

However, despite leading the Royal Blues into the quarter-finals of the Champions League and the final of the DFB-Pokal, that still appears unlikely due to cracks in his relationship with the fans.

According to the Bild newspaper, former Greece coach Otto Rehhagel is being lined up to replace him until the end of the season, when a new full-time solution will be found.

However, before the meeting took place, Magath still sounded optimistic about seeing out the final two and a half years of his contract.

When asked whether he would still be on the bench in Gelsenkirchen next season, he said: ''Of course, who else will?''
