John Arne Riise Had Some Pretty Damning Words To Say About Felix Magath

John Arne Riise Had Some Pretty Damning Words To Say About Felix Magath
By Ben Kiely Updated

Former Fulham defender John Arne Riise has lambasted their new manager Felix Magath.

The 61-year-old has come under fire after the Cottagers' dismal start to this year's Championship. Fulham have lost their first four league matches under Magath with a large number of people citing the German's influence as the main reason for the team's poor performances.

One of these detractors is Riise, who came out with some very critical words on Magath today.

With his arrival, they've flushed everything down the toilet. His methods are ancient.

(I) spoke to a few players after the Derby match. Once they returned to London, Magath ordered a team meeting at 10.30pm. Then the next morning, players were ordered to run for one hour, then another training session at 2.30pm. It's not the way to get the boys going. And training methods are terrible.

All football sessions are 11 v 11, working on tactics, interrupted every five minutes. It's a shame, but I fear for Fulham.

Riise insisted that the Fulham directors should bear the brunt of the blame for the club's league form debacle this season. He claimed that they appointed Magath despite having the full knowledge of his failings.

Responsibility lies with Magath and the guys upstairs. They knew exactly what they were getting with this guy.

I really like Fulham. It's a real family club with a great stadium, but with Magath everything gets flushed down the toilet.
