Aitor Karanka has won the Sky Bet Championship Manager of the Month award for the second time in his career at Middlesbrough.

Boro won all four our their Championship games in September, achieving a 10-2 goal differential, culminating in a 3-0 victory over Leeds.

It's amazing for me. I've been a manager here for two years and we have this award again.

It's not about me, it's about the staff, the players, the people at the club, and the supporters. Without them all it would be impossible.

September was a good month for us, winning those games, but we have to keep going in the same way and keep working."

– Aitor Karanka
