England fans have long memories, especially when ex Three Lions boss Steve McClaren failed miserably to get England to the finals of Euro 2008.

Have you forgiven him yet?

After the 3-2 Wembley defeat against Croatia last November (who remembers the ‘wally under the brolly’ pictures?) it didn’t take long for McClaren to leave good old blighty, (some say under a cloud) for pastures new. Wally is now coaching Dutch side FC Twente.

Talking ahead of tonight’s UEFA Cup game at the City of Manchester City Stadium, Steve McClaren stressed he was not in Holland for rehab.

‘Believe you and me, I’m not in rehab. It’s a word that’s not for me. I’m experiencing a different culture, different environment, different football and I’m enjoying it.’

‘It’s part of a career – it’s not rehab. Whatever you say, I’m enjoying my football. If I’m not a stronger person and a better manager now (than a year ago) I want shooting again. I should be with all the lessons I have learnt and I hope I am. That’s what I’m trying to do. Whatever I do I’m trying to be the best I can be.’


Talking of rehab, watch this infamous interview and decide for yourselves if you think he needs to be sectioned under the Mental Health Act.
