So former England coach and Sir Alex Ferguson’s old assistant Steve McClaren is returning to Old Trafford.
McClaren, who worked with new United boss Ten Hag at FC Twente, stepped down as technical director at Derby County, after the club entered administration.
He was by Ferguson’s side for the conclusion of the treble campaign in 1999, and United won the Premier League in each of McClaren’s three seasons as assistant manager.
Dutchman Mitchell Van der Gaag’s appointment is subject to endorsement from the FA and a UK visa. He has spent the last year as Ten Hag’s assistant at Ajax, having previously enjoyed a two-year spell in charge of the Amsterdam club’s reserve side. His playing career included two years in the Scottish top flight with Motherwell.
