Wolfsburg appoint Felix Magath as Coach Last updated Friday, 18 March 2011

German Bundesliga side Wolfsburg have confirmed on their official website that they've appointed Felix Magath as their new head coach.
Wolfsburg started the season with Steve McClaren as the man in charge, but the former England coach was sacked back in February.
They then appointed Pierre Littbarski as caretaker boss until the end of the season, but the former Germany international failed to get things going. The 2008-09 champions have dropped to 17th spot in the Bundesliga table and are under the threat of relegation.
Therefore, Wolfsburg were looking for a new coach and they've now found their man. The 57-year-old Magath was sacked by Schalke earlier this week, but didn't need long to find a new club.
He previously enjoyed a successful spell in charge of Wolfsburg from 2007 until 2009. He has also coached clubs such as Bayern Munich, Stuttgart, Werder Bremen and Hamburg in the past.
Magath will be presented during a press conference later on Friday.
