McClaren talks up Wolfsburg post
Thursday 20 May 2010
Steve McClaren has vowed to get to grips with the German language and culture as he prepares to take charge of Wolfsburg next season.
The former England and FC Twente coach has agreed to take over at the helm of the 2009 Bundesliga champions from 1 July and he has promised to do all he can to take them back to the top of the table.
"Of course I will try to learn German," McClaren said. "In addition, I would like to enjoy the German culture outside of football. I am looking forward to gaining experience in Germany and I would like to take in the history, tradition and culture of German football."
McClaren arrives at the Wolves after they endured a difficult season following their Bundesliga triumph. "I am coming to Wolfsburg because they have a lot of ambition and the means for success," he said.
