McClaren confirms United coaching team

Conor McGregor tells hockey player to ‘put him through the net!’

The Magpies, who presented McClaren only to preferred media partners following his appointment, announced on their official website on Thursday evening that the former England boss had introduced his new-look staff to fans registered to receive communications from the club.

The details come as no surprise – scot Ian Cathro and former Derby first team coach Paul Simpson have been appointed as assistant coaches, while Alessandro Schoenmaker will take over as fitness coach and Steve Black, who worked for the club during the 1990s, will help out on a consultancy basis.

Goalkeeping Andy Woodman, who has been linked with a move to Crystal Palace, also remains on board.
