McClaren After The Cup - Southgate After A Miracle!

McClaren told The Sun: "It's such a pity for the club and I hope they can still get out of it. Gareth Southgate is a young manager and, like us all, we have to learn the hard way."

McClaren's rehabilitation should move on a stage tomorrow as he seeks his second trophy as a manager following Middlesbrough's 2004 League Cup success.

Twente Enschede, the unfashionable Dutch club McClaren has steered to the Eredivisie runners-up slot this season, ahead of Ajax, PSV Eindhoven and Feyenoord, are favourites to defeat Heerenveen in the KNVB Cup final in Rotterdam.
