I am looking forward to working alongside Mel, as well as Sam Rush who initially brought me back here in 2013. Sam and I worked very well together previously and I am certain we can pick up where we left off.

When I was assistant to Jim Smith in the 1990s, Chris was part of the squad and a key player for us.He had a fine playing career, being capped by England as well as enjoying many years in the Premier League, so to have someone as talented as him as my assistant is really important.Derby have had a miserable start to the Championship season and are currently in 20th spot, having picked up just 10 points from 11 games including two wins.We are delighted that Steve McClaren has agreed to re-join us as our manager, Derby president and chief executive Sam Rush added. McClaren will link up with Chris Powell at Derby We enjoyed some fantastic and memorable moments under Steve during his previous tenure in charge.Steves arrival and subsequent work helped transform how we played our football. Steves time at Derby came to a premature end and I know he regrets that greatly. He values hugely his relationship with our supporters and I know that he will work very hard to ensure that the special connection returns.When we sat down as a board to begin the process of appointing a new manager it was apparent, as the architect of our style of football, that Steve was a prime candidate. Mel Morris, our Chairman, is clear about the plan for Derby County and we strongly believe that with Chris Powell, alongside Steve, we can ensure a successful future ahead.McClaren was dismissed at the iPro Stadium in May last year after the club failed to reach the Championship play-offs, despite spending most of the season in the top six.His return may not sit too comfortably with some Derby fans who still blame McClaren for the teams late failure to win promotion, saying his refusal to rule out a move to Newcastle United was a distraction.McClaren went on to become Newcastles head coach, three weeks after leaving Derby. His reign at the Magpies lasted less than a year and he was sacked in March, 2016.McClaren spent much of his playing career at Derby, and after a brief coaching spell at Oxford United he returned to work under Jim Smith in 1995. He then worked with Sir Alex Ferguson at Manchester United while assisting England boss Sven-Goran Eriksson.His first managerial job was at Middlesbrough, winning the League Cup and got them to the Europa League final.He then moved to the Netherlands and won the Eredivisie with FC Twente, but ill-fated spells with Wolfsburg, Nottingham Forest and Twente again followed, before he took the Derby job in September 2013.You can watch Englands tour of Bangladesh, plus Premier League football and the British Masters on Sky Sports.
