Fulham manager Felix Magath heads down the tunnel after the massive defeat against Derby

Felix Magath remains convinced he is the right man to lead Fulham back to the Premier League after his side were humbled 5-1 at Derby this afternoon – but admits there will be need to be major changes to his team.

The visitors collapsed after Scott Parker’s equaliser early in the second half and are now rooted to the bottom of the Championship table after four straight defeats. Magath has pledged to bring in new players in the final days of the transfer window, but his belief that he can turn things round at Craven Cottage remains undimmed.

That was the worst performance but the good thing about today is that it is clear we have to change something. The result was very bad and so now is the time to change. A few minutes after the game is not the time to talk about what we will change but for sure there will be new players in.

I am convinced the quality of the players is very good but we are not getting a real team at the moment because of the losses we have not enough confidence to show what we are able to do. I have to react and bring some players in.

I am not satisfied with the situation. Derby are one of the favourites for [promotion] this season and you can lose against such a good team but not in this manner.
