    Ronaldo punished €20,000 for being big-game flop, Totti taxed €10,000 for trying to sack coach - 20 more ridiculous Felix Magath fines
    Footballers of the world be very fearful, Felix is ready to milk you of your money

    By Carlo Garganese | Deputy Editor

    On Tuesday, a report emerged in Bild claiming that controversial Wolfsburg coach Felix Magath had imposed a new strict code of conduct for his players on and off the pitch. At the centre of this arrangement was a system of fines for all those found to be non-compliant.

    According to the report, those late for training sessions and team meetings would be fined €100 for every minute they were late, while anyone discovered wearing headphones on the team bus would be punished €250.

    For violations on the pitch, the fines became heavier: an unnecessary back-pass could cost a player €1,000, while a defender allowing a ball to bounce in front of him rather than clearing directly would be fined €500.

    To celebrate Magath’s screwball scheme, has satirically come up with some other hypothetical fines that players could expect to suffer at the hands of the former Germany midfielder.
