KRC Genk manager Alex McLeish says Steve McClaren inspired move

KRC Genk manager Alex McLeish says that former FC Twente manager Steve McClaren inspired him when he took his job managing in Belgium.

After failing to qualify for Euro 2008 as England manager, McClaren - whose Derby County side now sit top of the Championship - rebuilt his managerial career at Dutch side FC Twente, a path McLeish is hoping to emulate.

He talks more about his turbulent time at Aston Villa as well as his ambition to once again manage in the Premier League in this week's Football Focus.
