Sacked England coach Steve McClaren has bought a second villa in the Caribbean. He is splashing out £1.9million on a second villa in Barbados, says the Mail on Sunday. McClaren, 46, who was sacked as England football coach on Thursday, already owns a £1million three bedroom property at the Royal Westmoreland resort.
The new one, being built on the same estate, will have five bedrooms and, at 5,000 square feet, be twice as big.
McClaren is said to have completed the deal six weeks ago, when England still had a chance of qualifying for Euro 2008.
McClaren's neighbours include Gary Lineker, who has a £2.5million villa on Flamboyant Drive, footballers Rio Ferdinand and Joe Cole, cricketers Andrew Flintoff and Marcus Trescothick, golfer Ian Woosnam, jockey Richard Johnson and former Wimbledon champion Virginia Wade, while Andy Murray has also just bought a place there.
