Jonathan Woodgate named new Middlesbrough coach

14 Jun 2019, 15:20

Middlesborough have named former defender Jonathan Woodgate as their new manager on a three-year deal and is set to take over from Tony Pulis. 

The former defender will lead a new-look coaching staff, which will also include Robbie Keane, Leo Percovich and Danny Coyne.

"It's a huge honour. I've been a Middlesbrough fan since the age of six when I used to go with my dad. I'm honoured to be here. We've got a fantastic squad and we can be right up there and I want to promote the youth,"

"We've got players who can play now and in the future. I know players from right the Under-12s. I want to pass the ball, I want to us to score goals and we'll have that in abundance with the likes of Leo we have brought in,"

The former Real Madrid, Leeds United, Newcastle and Tottenham Hotspur centre-back inspired Boro to their Premier League promotion back in the 2015/16 season during his second spell as a player but was released having made one appearance.

Across two spells with his hometown club, Woodgate played 112 games across all competitions.

Woodgate, who won eight caps for England, later retired and went on to take on a role with Liverpool as a scout.
