“Three things tell a man: his eyes, his friends and his favorite quotes.”
Wolfgang-Felix Magath is a German football manager. Magath was born the son of a Puerto Rican soldier in the United States Army and a German mother. His father abandoned Magath and his mother to return to Puerto Rico in 1954. Magath first heard from his father after he sent a letter to Puerto Rico when he was 15. Magath would not visit his father in Puerto Rico until many years later in 2000. Magath says he has forgiven his father for abandoning him and they now have a friendly relationship.
Magath started his career playing for local club Viktoria Aschaffenburg. From 1974–1976, he played for 1. FC Saarbrücken, at that time in the second professional league, before moving to Hamburger SV in the Bundesliga. He would spend the entirety of his professional career as a midfielder at Hamburger SV, and from his debut in 1976 to his retirement in 1986 he scored 46 goals in 306 games for the club in the German Bundesliga.
