Former England manager Steve McClaren will return to Manchester United as one of Erik ten Hag’s assistant coaches, according to the club.

McClaren previously worked at Old Trafford alongside Sir Alex Ferguson and had a forgettable time in charge of the Three Lions, with his dismissal confirmed following their failure to qualify for Euro 2008.

He was a part of the club’s historic Treble-winning campaign in 1999, but left two years later to start his own business.

McClaren last managed at QPR in 2018-19, after which he worked as a technical director at Derby.

McClaren said: “I thought I worked hard until I met Erik.

“His great strength lies not just in his attention to detail and organisation. He has a clear philosophy of how he wants to play football; the environment he wants to create.”
