Steve McClaren Set For FC Twente Return

Richard Smith by Richard Smith / 04 January 2012, 09:59

Steve McClaren is set to make a dramatic return to management with his former club FC Twente. The Dutch club sacked boss Co Adriaanse on Tuesday morning and are now believed to close to tieing up a deal with McClaren, who led them to the Eredivisie title in 2010. The former England manager has been out of work since October when he quit Nottingham Forest following a poor start to the season. He is desperate to rebuild his reputation following unsuccessful stints at Forest and Bundesliga side Wolfsburg and a return to Holland could just be the antidote he needs.

McClaren spent two seasons at FC Twente before quiting to join German side Wolfsburg. However, this switch proved unfruitful as he was sacked in February 2011 after a disappointing nine months. McClaren returned to England during the summer of 2011 when he signed a deal to become the new Nottingham Forest manager. Hopes and expectations were high before the season got underway but after a poor start to the campaign the under-fire boss quit after 112 days in charge. With a job in English football unlikely, a move to Holland would probably be a beneficial one for McClaren as he seeks to rebuild his shattered reputation.

FC Twente are currently third in the league, five points behind league leaders AZ Alkmaar. McClaren is likely to face competition from Dutch national team manager Bart van Marwijk and PSV coach Phillip Cocu.
