McClaren reports for training


Steve McClaren reported for training as planned on Wednesday as speculation mounts regarding his future as Newcastle manager.

Newcastle have managed just seven wins in all competitions under McClaren this season and fans have made it clear to the club's board that they want a change in management.

The Fans Forum sent an open letter to the club's board in the wake of Saturday's 3-1 defeat to Bournemouth calling for swift action, but the powers that be have yet to make a decision.

Managing director Lee Charnley, chief scout Graham Carr and club ambassador Bob Moncur met on Monday to discuss McClaren's position and it has been reported that they have sounded out possible replacements.

Despite the uncertainty, McClaren took training on Tuesday and reported for duty on Wednesday morning to continue preparations for Monday's trip to Premier League leaders Leicester.

Former Liverpool and Real Madrid manager Rafael Benitez and former Everton and Manchester United boss David Moyes have been linked with the job, but it is unclear if the club will look to make a permanent appointment should they decide to axe McClaren.

With ten games remaining Newcastle are second from bottom in the table, one point behind 17th-placed Sunderland.
