McClaren sees Blackburn chance to rebuild reputation

Steve McClaren wants to repeat Sven Goran Eriksson's success at Manchester City by rebuilding his reputation with Blackburn Rovers.

Like Eriksson before him, McClaren has suffered since his England experience and sees the Rovers job as the ideal opportunity to prove the knockers wrong.

Dutch side FC Twente have shown an interest but Mac would love another crack at the Premier League to prove his doubters wrong.

A source close to McClaren told The Sun: "Steve wants to get back into work and sees Blackburn as a great opportunity.

"Holland remains an option but he has a burning desire to work in this country and show what he's all about.

"He is still hurting from England. Anyone who thinks he doesn't care is very wrong."
