Steve McClaren is the new manager of Bundesliga side Wolfsburg. So long Twente – he left them on a high (too much time in Dutch coffee shops perhaps?).
Schteeve has reportedly turned down the chance to return to England in favour of a new, wurst-filled experience in Germany. Good on him. He is a sponge, not a stone, it seems.
Wolfsburg won the Bundesliga title in 2009 but this season was a major disappointment. They sacked boss Armin Veh shortly after the winter break, and caretaker Lorenz-Gunther Kostner could only guide them to eighth in the league.
McClaren has signed a three-year deal. He’ll find the Bundesliga tougher to crack than the Eredivisie but I wish him well.
Time to brush up on your German accent, Herr Steve. Das schnitzel ist wunderbar.
