Wolfsburg Coach Leaves After Slump to Bottom of Table

Felix Magath left his post as Wolfsburg coach today as the club lies at the bottom of German soccer’s Bundesliga.

“The supervisory board of VfL Wolfsburg and Felix Magath have agreed to end their cooperation,” the team said in a statement on its website. It said he’d volunteered to step down in the interests of the club.

Magath led Wolfsburg to its first league title in 2009. He then had a spell at Schalke before returning to the Wolves, who have picked up only five points in eight games this season.

Reserve team coach Lorenz-Guenther Koestner has taken over the first team on an interim basis.
