Steve McClaren sacked by Wolfsburg
Former Middlesbrough and England manager Steve Mclaren has been sacked by German club Wolfsburg
After steering FC Twente to title glory last season, Mclaren joined Wolfsburg in May. But since then he had struggled to produce similar results as he did with FC Twente, leaving his club in 12th place and only one point adrift of the relegation zone
A statement from the German club read:
“VfL [Wolfsburg] have parted ways with Steve McClaren. Pierre Littbarski is taking over”
“We were no longer sure that we could work with Steve McClaren until the end of the season with some stability,” said director of sport Dieter Hoeness.
“We have tried to make things work for as long as possible, but we have lost faith that we can bring success.
“Following the recent negative results we cannot underestimate our situation in the table.
“Being only one point clear of the relegation places, we are alarmed.
“Now it’s just a question of increasing the gap to the relegation places as soon as possible.”
