Fulham boss Felix Magath freely admits to asking Lewis Holtby for advice on Tottenham ahead of Saturday's Barclays Premier League clash at White Hart Lane. The German is ruled out of the clash due to the terms of his loan agreement from Spurs.
"I always ask the players - John Heitinga against Everton and now Lewis against Tottenham," he said.
"Sure I ask Lewis how he sees the situation, how a certain player is, but it is not the only one kind of information I will get. I try to get all the information I can get.
"You try to get any information you can get. I'll try also to get any information from Tottenham for Saturday.
"It is always a problem if you are not careful with information. Maybe it happens some time.
"I think Tottenham will also try to get information from us, you cannot blame anyone for trying to get information. If you are lucky you can, so it is good."
