What Next For Steve McClaren?

Paul Smith by Paul Smith / 20 October 2011, 10:06

Following his departure from Nottingham Forest earlier in October many have pondered just what Steve McClaren can do to resurrect his floundering managerial career, with Stan James recently opening up a Steve McClaren Next Job betting market. One of the reasons McClaren returned to England back in June was to attempt to restore his tarnished reputation, however, after his nightmare stint at Forest he may now either decide to take some time off or alternatively opt to jump right back into the thick of things and face all of his critics and take up another managerial job in England or perhaps even venture off abroad.

Available at odds of 2/1, Continental Europe is McClaren's most likely option according to the betting. After being sacked as England manager due to his failure to guide the national team to Euro 2008 the 50-year-old fled to Dutch side FC Twente, which proved to be very wise move as he successfully guided the club to their first ever league title. Following his exploits in Holland he moved down to Germany to manage Bundesliga club Wolfsburg. Unfortunately things didn't go as planned and he was sent packing after just seven months in charge. McClaren may now want to test himself in one of Europe's other leagues such as France, Portugal or Spain.

McClaren is available at odds of 11/4 to bite the bullet and make an instant return to the Championship and begin to rebuild his reputation. One option could be Portsmouth who find themselves managerless after Steve Cotterill became McClaren's successor at Nottingham Forest. McClaren can currently be found with odds of 25/1 in the Next Portsmouth Manager Betting. Another option is the Premier League, however, it is unlikely that a top flight club will want to put their faith in him following his failings at Forest. If McClaren wants a job in England he may have to face stepping down a division, and is available at 12/1 to join a League One or Two club.

McClaren is also priced at 16/1 to cross the border and join a Scottish Premier League club. St Johnstone have a vacancy available due to Derek McInnes departure to Bristol City, while Neil Lennon is currently under pressure at Celtic. Other options include Asia and the Middle East at 5/1 or perhaps he might jump ship to America and manage a MLS side at 8/1.
