Claridge critical of Fulham approach



Magath has apologised for their defeat

Felix Magath was criticised after Fulham slumped to their third successive league defeat

Steve Claridge was critical of Fulham manager Felix Magath after watching the Cottagers lose 1-0 to Wolverhampton Wanderers.

The West London club, whose 13-year spell in the Premier League came to an end in May, have made a poor start to the current Championship campaign, with defeat to the 2013-14 League One champions prompting Magath to apologise to Fulham fans for his team’s third successive reverse.

But former Wolves striker Claridge, who won promotion to the top flight with Leicester City in 1995-96 and worked as a summariser for Radio 5 Live on last night’s match, was bemused by the decision making of the ex-Bayern Munich boss which included playing £11m man Ross McCormack on the left wing during the second half.

“There are lots of things that Fulham manager Felix Magath says and does that simply don’t add up,” Claridge was quoted as saying by the BBC.

“He paid £11m for a new striker in Ross McCormack and then ends up playing him on the left wing in just his third game. Absolutely crackers.”

Life in the second tier does not get easier for Fulham, however, with a trip to Derby County – last season’s beaten play-off finalists – coming up this Saturday.
