Bye-bye McClaren!

"No I won't. I understand the question but I'm not going to discuss my future."

"I would like to thank Steve for the work he has done since taking on the position last summer. His commitment to the job could not be questioned and I wish him the best for the future.
"The recruitment process for the new coach begins now and we will do everything to get the right man for the job."
