Twente Coach McClaren Takes Over Wolfsburg, TC Tubantia Says

May 11 (Bloomberg) -- Steve McClaren, the former England manager who guided FC Twente to its first Dutch Eredivisie title this season, has taken over at German club Wolfsburg, TC Tubanita reported.

“I’ve had two fantastic years at Twente and it ended in a fantastic way,” the regional Dutch newspaper quoted McClaren as saying. “I promised my wife and children I would be away from them for a maximum of two years. We’re all going to live in Germany now.”

McClaren became the first English coach to win a major European league championship since Bobby Robson at Porto in 1996. He joined Twente in June 2008, seven months after being fired as coach of England’s national team.

Wolfsburg finished eighth in the German Bundesliga this season after winning its first title in 2009.
