Germany: Hertha separates from coach Korkut
The Bundesliga Hertha BSC pulls the noose in the relegation battle and, after 5 consecutive defeats, has ended its collaboration with coach Tayfun Korkut with immediate effect. He had only taken the position from Pal Dardai in November. On the same day, Berliners Felix Magath presented their new coach until the end of the season. The 68-year-old must save Herta, who is second in the standings after 26 rounds, from relegation. Magath’s signature, known for his powerful fist, comes as a surprise, as “Quälix”, as he is also known as Magath, has not been active in major German football for ten years.
