Malaga players fighting for Schuster stay

Bernd Schuster is eager to remain as Malaga coach.

Bernd Schuster is eager to remain as Malaga coach.

Schuster recently revealed a clause in his contract which states it will be automatically renewed providing Malaga finish 10th or higher in the table, and they currently sit 13th with three games to play.

A disappointing 1-0 defeat at Getafe last week hit Schuster's hopes but Portuguese midfielder Duda believes the German is still the man for the job.

Duda told a press conference: "The coach came here with a goal and he achieved it. At first things didn't go as well as we expected but now we have succeeded.

"After we suffered, we got the results we needed through hard work and now we have to finish the job. We are happy and we are showing that on the field."
