Felix Magath commented on the discussion about a possible continuation of his commitment at Hertha BSC with a portion of self -irony.
“I am happy with my situation and will continue to be happy. I am in the good location that I don’t have to do anything,” said the 68-year-old.
He could “sit down and wait until someone calls again in March. Then I do what I do well,” said Magath, alluding to his image, which was also cultivated in Berlin as a rescuer in difficult locations.
With his statement at the Berliner press conference before the last home game in the Bundesliga on Saturday (6:30 p.m./Sky) against 1. FSV Mainz 05, Magath also brought Hertha Managing Director Fredi Bobic to laughter. He had hired him for the last eight season games in March. The contract ends.

Bobic repeated his statements that he only wanted to deal with the coaching position after the last matchday. “It’s just about staying in the class,” said the 50-year-old.
Most recently, Dynamo Moscow was reported on Sandro Schwarz as a possible next Hertha coach. André Breitenreiter was also traded as a candidate in Switzerland as a candidate after his championship title.
Magath had never ruled out a whereabouts, but it can be assumed that the Hertha is looking for a solution with a long -term perspective with a younger trainer.
