Steve McClaren has reportedly been ‘axed’ from his role as a senior advisor at Derby County.
The 60-year-old is “easy to let go”, according to The Sun, as he has only been working with the club on a consultancy basis.
Former England boss McClaren has had a number of spells managing, coaching and advising at Pride Park over the years.
He is now set to become the first senior member of Derby staff to leave after the club were placed into administration.
The Sun also report that McClaren could soon have a job lined up, with FIFA and UEFA both said to be interested in recruiting him for a role in their respective “think tanks”.
Meanwhile, EFL chairman Rick Parry has set out the recommendations he gave the government to narrow the “unbridgeable” wealth gap between the Premier League and the Championship, which is “enshrined” within current rules.
In an interview with the Telegraph, Parry outlined the recommendations he made to Tracey Crouch MP, leader of the government’s independent review of football governance.
He said that Derby are “right in the middle” of profit and sustainability rules which are “neither profitable nor sustainable”, adding that the club’s administration “illustrated the real challenges of the broken Championship financial model”.
