VfL Wolfsburg suffered a nightmare season, only just staying up in Bundesliga, in spite of signing internationally seasoned players Diego and Simon Kjær. Being threatened at the bottom of the table, especially after selling key striker Edin Džeko to Manchester City. The replacements were not up to scratch, which saw manager Steve McClaren sacked. Following a short stint with Pierre Littbarski in charge, the club's 2009 championship-winning manager Felix Magath, who just had been sacked from Schalke 04, in spite of having taken them to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League. Magath dropped Diego, prompting the Brazilian to refuse to sit on the substitutes' bench. In spite of the turmoil, a crucial away win at Werder Bremen helped Wolfsburg to stay just two points above Borussia Mönchengladbach in the relegation-playoff zone.
