Magath: We stopped playing

Fulham boss Felix Magath admitted he did not expect to beat Manchester City, but was unhappy with the way his 10-man side capitulated in a 5-0 defeat.

Yaya Toure scored a hat-trick, with the first two coming from the penalty spot, before Fernandinho and Martin Demichelis added further goals against the Premier League's bottom club.

Fernando Amorebieta saw red early in the second half after receiving two bookings for conceding the two penalties following fouls on Alvaro Negredo and David Silva.

But with the five teams immediately above them also failing to pick up points, Magath felt the result was not too damaging, although Fulham remain four points from safety.

Magath said: "Nobody expected a win here at Man City, so if we lost it is normal. Nobody will care about it.

"But I am not happy with our performance after the second goal. Sure, it was a bad moment for us and we lost a player but that is no reason to stop playing.

"I think we have to play for 90 minutes here with 10 or 11 players. It doesn't matter."

Fulham have seven games remaining to save their top-flight status, starting with next week's home clash against Everton.

Magath said: "That we lost here is not a problem. We have to win our home games and that is important for us.

"We can look forward to next week but we have to talk about this situation, that we don't fight to the end of the game.

"It is not correct, especially for our fans. They came to Manchester, like us, to win and make a good game.

"We have to fight for 90 minutes and not only 60."

ever ceases to amaze me when ex players come out with comments like that. Clearly they have zero interest in the best interests of a club that provided them with a living to be making such idiotic and boorish comments as that. Shame on you Jimmy Case.

ait, so now he can get injured when he's not on international duty? It's almost as if his previous injury could've happened at any time and being with the England squad had nothing to do with it.
