Magath admits he could've skipped Fulham for Bundesliga return

Fulham boss Felix Magath admits he could've returned to the Bundesliga last week.

Magath revealed that he nearly did not end up with the west Londoners, having thrown his hat in the ring at struggling Hamburg.

"I would have liked to have taken over at Hamburg and I offered my services - for the rest of the season without earning a salary," he told Bild. "But there were some people who didn't want to see me in Hamburg, for whatever reason.

"I laid out all my cards during the negotiations and made it perfectly clear that I had other opportunities.

"I never messed anybody about. Now I'm fully focused on Fulham."
