The football legend Felix Magath is coming back to Berlin! At least for a day. As a player, he was the director of the major Hamburg sports club in the 1970s and 80s and received numerous titles. Unforgettable: His dream goal against Juventus Turin in 1983.
In doing so, Felix Magath made HSV the winners of the European Cup. The strong left-footed Felix Magath followed his successful playing career as European champion, runner-up world champion and multiple German champion with an equally successful coaching career: he once saved Hertha BSC from relegation. His nickname: “Quälix”.
Despite all his triumphs, the son of a US soldier and a single mother has always maintained his clear and often merciless view of the football business. For many observers, Felix Magath is still a man of contradictions. Together with his long-time companion, the journalist Harald Kaiser, he wrote a biography about his life. The two talk about this with Frank Lüdecke, the cabaret artist and head of the cabaret theater DIE STACHELSCHWEINE, who is also a football columnist for the “Berliner Tagesspiegel” (“Running out with Lüdecke”) and for “Kicker”. It will certainly also be about the current situation in professional football. And Hertha BSC of course.
