Ghana midfielder Derek Boateng could experience a new lease of life at Fulham following the appointment of Felix Magath as coach of the side.

The German was handed the job following the dismissal of Rene Meulesteen – who only came into the job in November – on Friday.

Magath has been handed an 18-month contract to help the Cottagers escape relegation with 12 matches left in the English top flight.

Fulham are currently at the foot of the league – four points adrift safety.

The 60-year-old’s appointment could be good news for Ghana midfielder Derek Boateng who has been completely frozen out from the Fulham first team.

The 30-year-old has made just three appearances for Fulham since his arrival last summer from Ukrainian club FC Dnipro.

The former Getafe man could however revive his bid to make Ghana’s squad for the World Cup with a run of games if he is able to prove his fitness to the new manager who is nicknamed the ‘Torture’ and ‘Saddam’ for his rigorous training regimen.

Boateng has not played for Fulham since the 2-1 home defeat to Swansea back in November.
