McClaren kicks off new Twente era with 5-0 romp

Steve McClaren enjoyed a sensational return as FC Twente coach on the weekend.

McClaren made a convincing comeback in the Dutch league as his side Twente Enschede thrashed RKC Waalwijk 5-0 on Saturday to close in on the top.

The former England manager left Twente in May 2010 after winning the club's maiden title but rejoined two weeks ago after Co Adriaanse was sacked.

Luuk de Jong opened the scoring on 26 minutes, firing into an empty net after keeper Jeroen Zoet dropped a cross.

He later converted a 54th minute penalty to effectively settle the match after Emir Bajrami's deflected shot doubled the lead.

Nacer Chadli added a fourth before a fine free kick from Ola John completed the rout on 81 minutes.
