Good morning.

The Felix Magath story on the front of Kicker magazine linking him with the job looks at first glance to make for a welcome distraction.

Magath is the Vfl Wolfsburg manager. And the tale is an inspired punt. Alas, the assertion is merely conjecture at this stage. Felix has hit that point in the show where his contract needs renegotiating as it is due to expire in 2013. 

Magath has apparently expressed an interest in managing abroad in the past but the article quotes him as saying,

“I want to here long term, such is agreed with my supervisory boards. I have a contract until 2013 and am still here, fulfilling it.”

The Kicker piece concludes that they think his contract would be extended to 2015.

To be frank, aside from the quote it looks every bit like they’re making it up as they go along.
