Steve McClaren: QPR role after four months out of the game

Former England manager Steve McClaren has been appointed to Harry Redknapp's backroom staff at Queen's Park Rangers, the club confirmed today.

McClaren, who has also managed Middlesbrough, FC Twente, Wolfsburg and Nottingham Forest, has been out of the game since his second spell with Twente ended in February.

He has recently been linked with the England Under-21 post following the Football Association's decision not to offer a new contract to Stuart Pearce.

But now he will form part of Redknapp's backroom team as QPR try to secure immediate return to the Premier League.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
