Steve McClaren Joins QPR Backroom Team

Wed 3rd Jul 2013 | Football Club Management

Harry Redknapp has moved to strengthen his backroom team with the appointment of former England boss, Steve McClaren.

QPR boss, Redknapp told www.qpr.co.uk: “I am delighted to have been able to bring Steve in.

“Everyone in the game knows what a top coach he is and he’ll add something different to the group, regardless of how long he is with us for.

“This is a very important season for us and I wanted to look at freshening up the whole place, not just the playing side.

“I want new ideas, different opinions and another experienced head to speak to. That’s what Steve brings. Along with Kevin (Bond) and Joe (Jordan) I’ve got a brilliant backroom team and their input is going to be so important for me this season. Steve adds to the excellent staff I already have here.”

McClaren said: “I'm delighted to take up this position offered to me by Harry and QPR.

“Whilst it still remains my ambition to manage again this gives me an ideal opportunity to stay involved and work on the field with one of the top managers in this country and a very ambitious club.

“Rest assured, I'll be doing all I can for Harry, the club and the fans to help QPR return to the Premier League.”

McClaren joined Manchester United mid-way through the 1998/99 campaign as Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant at Old Trafford where he played his part in their historic Treble, winning the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League.

United won two more Premier League titles as McClaren’s reputation as a forward-thinking, innovative coach grew.

In October 2000, McClaren joined caretaker-manager Peter Taylor’s coaching set up with the England national team, and was retained by permanent boss Sven-Goran Eriksson.

He later went on to replace Eriksson as boss and also spent time as manager of Middlesbrough, FC Twente, Vfl Wolfsburg and Nottingham Forest.
