It was only two years ago that Steve McClaren was unwanted in his native England.
After winning the Dutch league with Twente, he has come a long way in rebuilding his reputation in Europe.
Matt Dickinson of the Times writes of how McClaren has rebuilt his name, and the numerous options now in front of him.
It must be wonderful for him just to have options. Two years ago, McClaren was toxic. He was unwanted after his failure with England. Blackburn Rovers met him but panicked about a negative fan reaction and rejected him for the tactical genius of Paul Ince. Yes, things were that bad.
The rebuilding of his reputation back home remains a work in progress, but McClaren is in serious demand on the Continent after winning the Dutch league with Twente.
This morning he will start the business of plotting his next career move, with keen German suitors, Hamburg and Wolfsburg, pushing for a decision by the end of the week.
