Felix Magath gets on his Boris Bike for commute to Fulham's training ground
Thursday 20 March 2014
Felix Magath, the Fulham manager, has been using a 'Boris Bike' to commute to the club's Motspur Park training ground.
A photograph of Magath cycling in London wearing a tracksuit top, jeans and trainers – but no helmet – has circulated on social media this week.
The German has confirmed it was him, explaining that occasionally he uses the bike rental system to complete the 14-mile round trip to work.
"At the moment I'm without a car and I have to move. From the hotel to here is too far to go, so I take a bicycle," he said. "I took a bike to here and it was very nice. I prefer sometimes the bike."
Magath was photographed on the Boris Bike two days after masterminding his first victory as Fulham manager in four attempts with a 1-0 win over Newcastle.
The fight for Premier League survival continues at Manchester City tomorrow and Magath has made a cheeky attempt to lure Edin Dzeko to Craven Cottage.
Dzeko, who has failed to set Eastlands alight since his move to City three years ago, played under Magath at Wolfsburg.
"Edin has a difficult situation because he's not the only striker at Manchester City," Magath said. "They have a lot of very good players. Perhaps he should come to Fulham. He could score many more goals here than at Man City."
