Karanka thanks Middlesbrough players after leaving club

Aitor Karanka has taken to Twitter to give his immediate thoughts after leaving his role as head coach of Middlesbrough.

The Premier League club announced the news  this morning, three days before the team’s clash against Manchester United.

A run of three consecutive defeats has left Boro in the relegation zone, three points from safety with 11 games left to play.

Over the past three-and-a-half years, Karanka shaped Middlesbrough into a Premier League team once again by guiding them to the top flight last season.

Off the pitch, though, there were rumours of fallouts and Karanka’s future looked uncertain at times.

Now, the club has confirmed that it was mutually decided to part company with the 43-year-old, who spent three years as Jose Mourinho’s assistant coach at Real Madrid before moving to the Riverside.

Shortly after the official announcement was made, Karanka addressed his 34,300 followers on Twitter, and had nothing but kind words to say about the club.
