FC Twente's chairman says that he is not planning to sack Steve McClaren, despite a recent run of negative form.

FC Twente manager Steve McClaren has received some backing by the club's chairman.

The former England boss has come under pressure from some of the team's supporters in recent weeks, with the side having not won a league fixture since before Christmas.

However, Joop Munsterman has insisted that he has no intention of parting with the 51-year-old.

"There have been no developments. I'm still behind what I've said last Monday," said Munsterman. "For us, the situation has not changed with this defeat. It is a stable situation at the club."

McClaren guided Twente to their first league title back in 2009.
