Steve McClaren

Englishman Steve McClaren has been linked with a return to Manchester United in the summer.

United are currently in the market for a new manager with Erik Ten Hag being one of the favorites to take over the team and according to the Guardian, the club will need someone with Premier League experience to deputize the Dutchman.

McClaren previously worked at United as number two under Sir Alex Ferguson between 1999 and 2001, before stepping into management with Middlesbrough.

The Englishman had ten Hag as his assistant for the 2008/09 season when in charge of Twente Enschede where they guided the club to second place before securing the club’s first Eredivisie championship the following season.

He boasts a wealth of experience in professional football having been in charge of Wolfsburg, Nottingham Forest, Derby County (twice), and Newcastle United with his last managerial position coming with Queens Park Rangers three years ago when he was sacked with the club 17th in the Championship.

McClaren also had an 18-month spell in charge of England but was dismissed after the team failed to qualify for the 2008 European Championships.
