Karanka. My concern (bit like Strachan) he brings in loads of young Spanish players & it doesn't work then what? If it does he'll be off.
@itvfootball Delighted, shows some genuine ambition.
@itvfootball yeh, i am happy enough. Beats having Megson/Pulis/Pearce
@itvfootball can't be any worse than Mowbray
Former Athletic Bilbao defender Aitor Karanka is set to be appointed as the new Middlesbrough manager, according to reports.
Karanka previously worked as Jose Mourinho's assistant at Real Madrid, but this will be his first time in charge of a club.
Tony Mowbray has left his position as Middlesbrough manager.
The club confirmed that assistant Mark Venus would take over from the 49-year-old, who has been at the helm since 2010, until a permanent successor is appointed.
A statement on their official website read: "Middlesbrough Football Club have today announced that manager Tony Mowbray has left the club with immediate effect.
"Assistant manager Mark Venus will take charge of the team until further notice."
Top-a-de-morny-to-ya from Ipswich England. I can see Norwich from my window ? So close. Game day, can't wait to put on my new colors. #Boro
A late goal from substitute Jordi Gomez rescued Wigan a point from a Sky Bet Championship draw with Middlesbrough.
The home side had led through Grant Holt's early penalty, but found themselves trailing when George Friend equalised before half-time, with Grant Leadbitter putting the Teessiders ahead inside the final quarter.
Gomez, though, ensured a share of the spoils when he drilled home a brilliant free-kick five minutes from time.
Alex Brister scored a wonder goal as Fulham recorded successive Under-21 Premier League wins by beating Middlesbrough 1-0 at Craven Cottage.
What a shame there was no-one there to see it.
