Boro eye Championship veteran as replacement for Woodgate

Boro eye Championship veteran as replacement for Woodgate

Jonathan Woodgate’s time at Middlesbrough seems to be numbered, as he is close to losing his job just a few months after taking over in the summer.

Woodgate has overseen a disappointing run of form at Boro with the club only managing three league victories under his regime. 

The 4-0 loss against Leeds United on Saturday was a fresh low for the club, who are ready to act almost immediately to prevent the campaign from sinking any deeper.

After the experiment with a fresh face like Woodgate went wrong, Boro are keen on opting for experience.

According to reports, Boro are looking to bring in Neil Warnock as Woodgate's replacement.

The 71-year-old is currently out of work after having recently left Cardiff City. He is a man with a vast experience in the game and he has managed several Championship clubs.

As a manager, Warnock has had 112 games in the Premier League and 436 matches in the Championship. Even though Woodgate is just a few months into his three-year contract, Boro’s terrible start to the season sees them in the 20th position and with the fewest goals (16) scored in the first 19 games.
