Former England coach Steve McClaren could be a contender for the job once again when Fabio Capello steps down after Euro 2012. That is the message from the English FA’s director of football development Trevor Brooking.

McClaren’s last spell as England coach, having succeeded Sven-Goran Eriksson, saw the country fail to qualify for Euro 2008 and the former Manchester United assistant manager was widely slammed for having failed to get the best out of a talented bunch.

Since that time however, McClaren has won the Dutch Eredivisie title with FC Twente and has now moved on to boss former Bundesliga champions Wolfsburg.

"Could Steve do the England job again? I’m sure if he continues to be a success then his name will be in the frame again", said Brooking, before adding, "I wouldn’t rule out anyone. I think it would be very unfair to do that."
