Fulham boss Felix Magath has come to the defense of his compatriot Jurgen Klinsmann in the form of an offensive attack on Landon Donovan

Donovan has been in the news for criticizing some of Klinsmann's selections and tactics in Team USA's round-of-16 defeat to Belgium, sentiments which were relayed by Scott French of MLS.com. Donovan, as we all know, was controversially omitted from Klinsmann's final 23-man roster for the World Cup. 

Magath, who was capped 43 times for then-West Germany, wasn't impressed by Donovan's comments. He praised the Americans' efforts but was highly critical of Donovan on his Facebook page

Highlights include: reminding that Donovan couldn't cut it on Bayern Munich's second team and calling him a "mediocre player."
