United have a new start with Steve McClaren, his premier league managerial  record is W64 D50 L76. His win percentage in the premier league is 34% and his overall managerial win percentage is 46.45% McClaren wants his staff in before the start of Pre-season training on July 1.

McClaren told BBC Newcastle. "I'm looking for the best, it can be difficult because good people are always working elsewhere. No doubt though, I want my team in by next week, with a good week to 10 days to prepare." Steve McClaren’s first success followed his move to Derby County in 1995 to assist former Newcastle manager Jim Smith. Promotion to the Premier League was achieved in their first season together before McClaren then moved to Manchester United in early 1999.

His first managerial appointment was surely on the cards, and it was Middlesbrough who gave McClaren his chance, succeeding Bryan Robson in 2001. By 2004, McClaren had won Middlesbrough the League Cup, with a 2-1 victory over Bolton. This was the first major honour in Boro’s history, and also ensured European football for the following season for the first time.
