After the announcement of his departure from Hertha BSC, ex-coach Felix Magath does not take good care of the club. But now he is suddenly distributing squad tips to the capital club.

Opposite: Felix Magath advises his ex-club Hertha BSC after announcing his departure to extend Kevin-Prince Boateng’s contract, which expires on June 30th. The 68-year-old emphasized to the “kicker” that the midfielder, as a central figure, played a large part in the victory in the relegation against Hamburger SV and thus in staying up. Magath had previously sharply criticized his former club.

Outstanding: According to Magath, Hertha “will not be able to avoid taking him next year” due to Boateng’s personality. The 35-year-old is “a character that football needs – and above all Hertha BSC. Because otherwise Hertha is not so blessed with guys”.

Close to home: Boateng has been playing for Hertha again since last summer and, according to statements, plans to continue with the club. In 2007 he left his youth club for Tottenham Hotspur.
