FC Twente have confirmed Steve McClaren has been appointed the club's manager for a second time.

6997 - McClaren completes Twente return

McClaren quickly emerged as the favourite to succeed Co Adriaanse, who was sacked on Tuesday by the Eredivisie club, and the appointment was confirmed on Thursday afternoon.

The former England boss led Twente to their first ever Eredivisie title in his second season before leaving to take charge of Bundesliga side Wolfsburg in May 2010.

The 50-year-old was sacked less than a year later and his most recent post was at Nottingham Forest, who appointed him last June on a three-year deal.

However, McClaren resigned in October with Forest just one point and one place above the Championship relegation zone.
