Magath raps Fulham defending on Chelsea defeat

Fulham boss Felix Magath was upset with their defending for defeat to Chelsea.

Fulham boss Felix Magath was upset with their defending for defeat to Chelsea.

Magath, who lost captain Brede Hangeland to a head injury in the first half, berated his side's defending after the interval and highlighted Chelsea's first goal as a particular low point.

"I was satisfied with the first half," he said.

"We had two or three good situations but I don't know what happened at half-time and it seems the players forgot to defend. It was for us a very big problem that our captain was injured and wasn't there in the second half.

"I don't know how difficult the injury to Brede Hangeland is and I hope he will come back and join us next week but we have to work on defending.

"I have seldom seen a goal like the first today. Schurrle takes the ball form near his own goal and runs the whole field and no-one tackles him. He can run 90 metres and score with no contact."
