Felix Magath has told his Fulham team that they are capable of escaping relegation, but only through hard work, reports the Daily Mirror.
The 60-year-old German takes charge of his first game this weekend against fellow strugglers West Brom, but believes his team can do enough to stay up.
"We have to work, to stay together and fight against relegation. That is all (we have to do) in the next few weeks. have worked with some clubs who were on the bottom, and I was never relegated. I have always had success with them and developed them, made them better.
"We are behind the others, so it is not good enough for us to make a draw - we have to win, that is the only way we come out. We are able to avoid relegation and that is now the most important thing."
The German is known for pushing his teams to the limit, and has been successful, winning the Bungdesliga with Bayern Munich and Wolfsburg. Fulham are four points off from West Brom who currently lie 17th. With 12 games left of the season to save the season, Magath says it's time to start winning. "But this is not the time to develop, it is time to make points."
