FC Twente coach Steve McClaren has cooled talk of taking the new FA technical director’s post.

McClaren, 50, has already been strongly linked, following a coaching career that has seen him manage in England and on the continent, but he has now revealed the position did not interest him.

McClaren, who returned to manage Dutch side FC Twente earlier this year, told De Telegraaf: "Absolute nonsense, I don't have the ambition to fulfil an office job. Maybe in 10 years, but certainly not now."
