Sacked Fulham boss Magath defends cheese episode

Sacked Fulham boss Felix Magath has defended his time at Craven Cottage.

Magath has defended his spell in charge of Fulham and insisted he still has something to offer to English football.

He told DPA: "I don't have a guilty conscience.

"I don't want to sound arrogant, but I am convinced that English football has something to learn from German qualities. Sadly they're not that prepared to listen. I think I still have something to offer English football."

Magath's methods have come under fierce criticism from former players, notably ex-captain Brede Hangeland who was once told by the veteran boss to treat a leg injury by rubbing cheese onto the sore area.

But the former Bayern Munich coach insisted: "I merely suggested it could be worth trying the old wives' tale of applying quark to the injured area. I would never tell a doctor what to do."
