McClaren set to be named Newcastle manager as Carver is sacked

Newcastle United are set to announce Steve McClaren as their new manager in the next 24 hours.

The club has also today announced that interim manager, John Carver, has left the club.

First-team coach Steve Stone has also left the club, as McClaren is expected to bring in his own back-room staff.

Paul Simpson and Eric Steele, part of Derby’s coaching team, could well follow McClaren to Tyneside following Carver and Stone’s departures.

50 year-old Carver had hoped to keep the managerial post on a permanent basis but could only manage three wins from 20 games in charge of the Magpies.

McClaren won the 2004 League Cup with Middlesbrough, the club’s only major trophy, before leaving to manage England in 2006.

Following the disappointment of missing out on Euro 2008, the York-born manager was sacked and headed to the continent to resume his club managerial career.

A short stint at Nottingham Forest followed before McClaren went back to FC Twente in January 2012.

Most recently, the 54 year-old has spent two years with Derby County and rejected the chance to manage Newcastle twice last year.

However, it is thought that Newcastle will announce McClaren as their new manager on Wednesday.
