Magath refuses to get carried away with survival hopes

Fulham manager Felix Magath has insisted that he is fully focused on the next match rather than getting carried away after back-to-back wins, according to Sky Sports.

Consecutive wins for the Cottagers against relegation rivals Aston Villa and Norwich have given Fulham hope for survival after many considered them to be out of the Premier League picture.

With four games remaining and just two points from safety, Magath has insisted that his focus is on the Tottenham match on Saturday.

“Nobody can be safe if you realise the results, especially on Wednesday. Sunderland were close to a win at Manchester City so at the end of the season almost everything is possible,” said the Fulham boss.

“So we can see that everybody has a chance. So we can go to Tottenham and try to win. It’s not the time for celebrating because our aim is to stay in the league. There are a lot of days between the day we can celebrate and now.

“We have to go to Tottenham and have a very good game so we have to try to win that.”

Magath admitted that he is in regular contact with the club’s owner Shahid Khan and that they converse about every game.

The 60-year-old insisted that the owner was well aware of the current situation the club is in and that he understands Magath’s position.

“I have spoken with Mr Khan before and we speak every week together. We spoke about the coming game and the situation,” added Magath.

“Not only Mr Khan, we all were very happy about the win on Saturday but he knows that it was a first step, it was not the end.

“We have to take care about the next games and we have to take care about the next opponent and it is Tottenham.”
