Steve McClaren Under Pressure At Wolfsburg After Tough Start

Mark Cohen by Mark Cohen / 16 September 2010, 08:17

Steve McClaren is once again facing a tough spell in his Managerial career after a tough start to his time in Germany, McClaren took over the role at Wolfsburg in the summer but after losing their first three games he is already starting to feel the heat. The Former England Manager had offers to return to England over the close season but he decided to continue his continental adventure by heading to the Bundesliga, he was highly sought after following his successful spell in the Netherlands with FC Twente which ended in May with McClaren leading the team to the Dutch Title.

McClaren decided that he wanted to further his knowledge and experience by taking on the job at Wolfsburg, it has not been an easy start though for his in the Bundesliga with the pressure cranked up a notch form his spell in Holland with Twente. Wolfsburg where the League Champions in 2009 in a remarkable achievement but after slipping away last season they are now looking for McClaren to lead them back into the Champions League, it will not be easy though with the Bundesliga looking particularly strong this season with the likes of Bayern Munich, Werder Bremen and Hamburg among others looking in good shape.

McClaren decided to head into Europe on the the advice of the late great Sir Bobby Robson, after his ill-fated spell as England Manager he decided he would build his knowledge on the Continent before coming to England in the future to prove his point. So far that plan has worked perfectly but he will need to improve the fortunes of Wolfsburg pretty quick if he is to extend his stay in the Bundesliga, the fans and board will not put up with the team struggling for too long so he will need to start picking up some points as soon as possible.

McClaren has been through a lot over the past few years with England failure followed by success in the Netherlands with Twente, so despite him struggling at the moment with Wolfsburg few would be surprised to see him bounce back over the next couple of months.
