Magath cuts Die Wolfe duo
Wolfsburg manager Felix Magath has omitted defender Sotirios Kyrgiakos and midfielder Jan Polak from his squad for the next few days after being disappointed by their performances in a friendly match yesterday.
Die Wolfe, who have lost seven Bundesliga matches already this season, were beaten 2-0 by second division side Energie Cottbus and Magath has made Kyrgiakos and Polak his scapegoats. "I have decided not to consider the pair for the coming games," Magath is quoted as saying by sport.de. "We have so many players in our squad who can replace them."
Wolfsburg currently lie 13th in the Bundesliga and Magath arranged the game to enable him to take a closer look at his options. However, he felt let down not only by Kyrgiakos and Polak.
"We played a good game in the first half, but I cannot explain what one or two players were thinking in the second half," he said. "There were several players in the team who had the chance to prove what they can do after impressing in training. They failed to take this chance today."
