ROTTERDAM, Feb 26 (Reuters) - Former England manager Steve McClaren has stepped down as coach of Twente Enschede after a six match winless streak, Dutch media reported on Tuesday.
"A person is not bigger then the club and the club is too big in my heart to block progression," McClaren was quoted as saying.
