Pressure is mounting on FC Twente manager Steve McClaren after his side's terrible run of form continued at the weekend. Without a win since late December, six points behind Eredivisie leaders PSV and out of Europe, Twente were held 1-1 by lowly Willem II on Saturday.

There have been calls by some Twente supporters for McClaren to be replaced. The ex-England boss returned to Twente, where he won the Dutch title in 2010, last January after an unsuccessful spell in charge of Nottingham Forest.
