Mark Fotheringham to enact the German style in England


Mark Fotheringham is looking forward to implementing his learnings from Bundesliga in the Premier League by seeking a return to England.

Fotheringham’s time in Germany

The former Celtic midfielder has found success in the Bundesliga by working alongside Felix Magath in recent years. The Scotsman played a major role as an assistant manager and helped Hertha Berlin stay in the German top tier.

Before guiding Hertha Berlin from the sidelines he served a Bavarian side. His time with Ingolstadt saw him promote to the second division in German football. He served as an assistant coach to Tomas Oral and at the age of 38 years, Mark Fotheringham is now ready to climb a step and become the lead manager of a club.

A return to England perhaps?

Fotheringham didn’t see bright days during his time at Celtic and thus doesn’t see a return to Scotland. He made only 3 appearances in the span of 4 years which forced him to leave the Hoops. With experience in Germany, he got used to the competition and wishes to leave Deutschland for another country.

The Scotsman is clearly in a good position considering a promising CV with records that speaks for himself. On the other hand, he looks to be searching for a job with a Premier League side where he can put what he’s learned in Germany into action.

Why isn’t he returning to Scotland?

As long as it’s explained clearly, you can comprehend that. He won’t be taking over as Celtic manager relatively soon. It’s intriguing to speculate about whether he might have suited a transfer to a team like Rangers or Dundee, but such positions won’t be open any time soon either.

Fotheringham is obviously not seeking to wait around for a chance to present itself in Scotland. With his stock at its greatest level since beginning his career in management, he will be proud of himself. In conclusion, it would be interesting to see if the former Celtic player can pull a stint in implementing Bunedsliga tactics in the Premier League.
