Fulham Boss Roy Hodgson & Twente Coach Steve McClaren Wanted By Wolfsburg - Report

Fulham manager Roy Hodgson continues to attract interest from home and abroad due to his recent exploits at Craven Cottage, and the Englishman is in the running along with countryman Steve McClaren, the current coach of Twente, to become Wolfsburg’s next boss, according to Kicker.

The Bundesliga club have endured a difficult campaign and are presently coachless as Lorenz-Guenther Koestner is only taking care of the side on a temporary basis until a permanent appointment can be made. Gerard Houllier has already reject die Wolfe, prompting general manager Dieter Hoeness to look to England for his next general.

Hodgson would appear to be the ideal candidate. Not only has he enjoyed terrific success with the Cottagers this season, leading them to the final of the Europa League, he also has vast experience of coaching abroad, having enjoyed posts in Finland, Italy and Switzerland amongst others. His ability to speak German is also considered a major plus.

Meanwhile, McClaren’s stock has risen dramatically since being sacked as England boss in 2007. The former Middlesbrough leader has enjoyed a renaissance in the Netherlands, leading Twente to their first Eredivisie title.

Die Wolfe are likely to have stiff competition for both men as there are whispers linking the managers to Liverpool.
