Fulham boss Felix Magath has scoffed at his 'torturer' tag.

Magath was dubbed the 'Torturer' in Germany due to his tough fitness sessions.

"Why should I change my training? At the moment I am the most successful (club) coach of Germany. Why should I change?" he said.

"I don't know. Can you explain? Until now everybody has loved my training. No-one died."

Magath added: "I am a nice guy, very nice (not a tough guy)," he said.

"Ask Raul about my work, don't ask a player who did not know here in England. Ask the good players and you will get the right answers."
