Derby County looking for new boss after McClaren sacking

Derby County have sacked Steve McClaren, and are on the lookout for a new manager.

Derby who were top of the league up to the end of February, only won two of the last 13 games, accumulating in a 3-0 home defeat to Reading on the final game of the season, which meant them missing out on the play offs completely.

McClaren who includes on his managerial resume, spells with England, Middelsborough, FC Twente and Wolfsburg, is quoted as being very disappointed with the decision.

Derby have now began the search for a new manager to get themselves into the Premier League, recent appointments such as Billy Davies, Nigel Clough and now Steve McClaren, have not managed to find the magic formula.

The former England boss has been linked with the a role at either Newcastle United or Sunderland in previous weeks, although those roles highly depend on the futures of John Carver and Dick Advocaat.

Writers View: I am sure managers such as Sam Allardyce will be linked with the role, but my own personal view I would like to see them try and bring in a manager such as Michael Laudrup or Roberto Di Matteo, but whether either would be interested in a role in the Championship is another matter.
