          Neil Warnock has today been appointed as Middlesbrough manager in order to save their relegation threatened season, following the dismissal of Jonathan Woodgate after a 3-0 loss to Swansea at the weekend.

          Local lad and former Real Madrid, Spurs and Tottenham defender, Woodgate, was seen as a huge risk for a club handing him his first job in management, and despite an impressive four-game winning streak over the Christmas period, Boro’s drift towards the relegation zone with a record of 9 wins, 14 draws and 15 losses, was deemed unacceptable.

          The timing will have raised many eyebrows as Middlesbrough had a three month window to replace Woodgate during the coronavirus shutdown, but waited to act after their first game back, a 3-0 loss to Swansea, which leaves Boro 21st in the Championship, just outside of the relegation zone on goal difference.

          Neil Warnock, who holds the record for the most promotions in English football with eight, is seen as a safe pair of hands to steer Middlesbrough away from relegation, and after departing fellow Championship side Cardiff earlier this season, he could be taking perhaps his final job in football, after a 40 year coaching career and almost 1500 games managed.
