Netherlands: McCalren back as Twente coach

As Beezsports speculated, Steve McClaren has been re-hired by FC Twente with whom he won the league title in 2009/2010 season.

The former England boss comes in to replace fired Co Adriaanse who was sacked on Tuesday following three successive losses  during the opening stages of the 2011/2012 season.

McClaren left Twente after his success story with them and joined German club Wolfsburg, but got himself fired in that job before reurning home to take up a post with Nottingham Forest, but never lasted beyond 122 days, quitting his job for unspecified reasons.

The Englishman is happy to be back in familiar territory and explains exactly why he decided to come back.

"The club is still developing, still growing and I think this is an ideal opportunity for me to go back and finish what we were starting."

"I know the club very well. I know the people at the top. I can work with the people at the top.

"I think that is the most important thing. I had a good relationship with them the last time. I know where the club is coming from.

"I know what their vision is. I know what their ambitions are. It is still there. That was the key thing for me," McClaren said.

The coach has signed a two and half year contract with the former Dutch champions.
