Former England boss McClaren handed Dutch ban

September 4, 2009

FC Twente coach Steve McClaren has been handed a one-match touchline ban by the Dutch FA.

The Englishman was punished for entering the pitch during the 1-1 draw with Feyenoord last weekend, after becoming incensed at a decision made by referee Roelof Luinge.

McClaren was sent to the stands by Luinge, but the KNVB's disciplinary commission have decided to ban him for his actions.

Twente have until Thursday to appeal the decision, which could see McClaren miss the home clash with FC Utrecht on September 12.
