With the appeal of Felix Magath as successor of the scared Tayfun Korkut, Hertha BSC has been providing a big surprise – but partially cried. The longtime magath-familiar Seppo Eichkorn has now criticized the Häme against the coach.
“I think that his obligation has risen the chance at the Hertha on the league. He will give the Berlin team a clear structure,” said the former co-trainer under Magath in the YouTube format “BeDfußig Star Talk”.
Magath had taken over the relegation threatened Hertha as a coach on Monday and thus started his first coaching job for over four years. Only eight games remain to lead him to the Berliner still from the direct relegation place.
The 68-year-old, between 2005 and 2009 three times German masters with FC Bayern and the VfL Wolfsburg, is considered a hard dog in the industry. Unforgettable is the legendary hill he disashed in Wolfsburg to enable hard condition training.
“I do not think he will make structural measures for these eighth games. To reduce Felix on such a hill is cheap and unfair,” however, Eichkorn made it clear.
Once with FC Bayern and Schalke 04
Nevertheless, the former Schalke believes that in Berlin will soon blow another wind. “He gives the players for freedoms in the design, but not in the tactical specifications. He will render Rigoros. He will see who brings the setting for the descent fight and then he will choose a circle of players with which he will choose this task will be approached, “the 65-year-old announced.
However, the decision to take over the task in the capital is not free of risk, says Eichkorn. “The problem is that he has only a few games. Also, I hope, as he relies on a good physique, this is in good condition to continue working.”
Eichkorn once accompanied Magath as co-coach over several stations. The duo trained together the FC Bayern, the VfL Wolfsburg and finally the FC Schalke 04.
