Twente confirm McClaren talks

FC Twente have confirmed they're in talks with former Middlesbrough and England manager Steve McClaren.

Twente chairman Joop Munsterman has met McClaren to show him around the club's Grolsch Veste stadium and is waiting for a response from the Englishman.

He said: "We want a coach who is accustomed to working with top players."

Munsterman admits most fans of the Enschede club are sceptical about a coach who failed to guide England through qualification for Euro 2008.

He added: "Ninety percent thinks: why McClaren?

"But believe me, if he becomes our coach we will have a coach who is accustomed to working with top players and he can recognise them."
