Despite only eight games to go in the Championship, Middlesbrough has effectively replaced Jonathan Woodgate with Neil Warnock.
“The club would like to place on record its thanks to Jonathan for all his work in the role of head coach,” the club confirmed via a brief statement.
Middlesbrough has sacked Jonathan Woodgate, replacing him with Neil Warnock as head coach.
Woodgate was dismissed early on Tuesday, with immediate effect from the former Cardiff City boss Warnock taking charge.
Woodgate, who completed his playing career at the Riverside Stadium, was only appointed last June as head coach.
On the other hand, last November, Warnock left Cardiff. Having brought the Bluebirds to the Premier League in 2018, he then struggled to keep them from being relegated to the second tier last season.
The first game the 71-year-old will be in charge of will be away to Stoke City on Saturday.
In the Championship table, Boro is 21st with just eight matches remaining and on goal difference just above the relegation zone.
Last Saturday they lost 3-0 at home to Swansea City in their first match since March’s coronavirus pandemic forced season suspension. These results might be the reason why this decision was taken.
