Having led FC Twente to their first Dutch title in his second season in Enschede, former England manager Steve McClaren has moved to deposed German champions VfL Wolfsburg.
The 49-year-old has committed to the Wolves until June 2012 as he looks to build on a fine two-year spell at Twente, where his side were runners-up in league and cup in his first season in charge before taking the title this time around. Sir Alex Ferguson's one-time assistant at Manchester United FC, McClaren led Middlesbrough FC to the first trophy in their history, the 2003/04 English League Cup, and the UEFA Cup final two years later, leaving to take charge of England having previously worked as Sven-Göran Eriksson's assistant. McClaren's reign proved brief as he was dismissed in November 2007 after England failed to reach UEFA EURO 2008.
Having won the title in 2008/09 under Felix Magath, Wolfsburg failed to repeat their successes this season, bowing out of the UEFA Champions League after the group stage and replacing coach Armin Veh with Lorenz-Günther Köstner. Although they went onto reach the UEFA Europa League quarter-finals, an eighth-placed Bundesliga finish means they will not be in Europe next season. As Dutch champions, Twente will enter the 2010/11 UEFA Champions League in the group stage.
