Middlesbrough have sacked manager Aitor Karanka who was appointed in November 2013 and won promotion last season. Since mid-December Middlesbrough have failed to win in 10 league games.
The professional association football Club based in Middlesbrough, North Yorkshire, England currently sits in the relegation zone, 3 points from safety with 11 games remaining.
Under such situation, the control of the team has been given in the hands of assistant head coach Steve Agnew. Although Agnew could conceivably keep the job until the end of the season, alternative contenders are understood to have been sounded out
The sacked manager also fell out with Álvaro Negredo, Gastón Ramírez, Ben Gibson, the team’s key defender and nephew of Steve Gibson, the owner, publicly questioning overly defensive tactics, all this indicates that the club had begun preparing for life after Karanka couple of weeks back.
The club released a statement saying, “Both parties have agreed that it is in the best interests of the club to make this change. The club would like to thank Aitor for all his hard work over the past three and a half years and for the success we’ve had during that time. We wish him all the best for the future. Steve Agnew will step up from his role as assistant head coach to take control of first-team affairs with immediate effect.”
The Spanish manager said: “I’d like to thank Middlesbrough for a wonderful opportunity and the players, staff and all the people at the club who I have worked with. I’d also like to thank the fans for their support. This club will always hold a special place for me and I wish everyone connected with Middlesbrough football club the very best for the future.”
The former Real Madrid assistant manager was Middlesbrough’s first ever non-British boss.
