Middlesborough and Neil Warnock parted ways after one of the uneventful football results of the weekend in the Championship. The latter earlier this week broke the record of games managed as he took charge of his 1602nd game. Chris Wilder has agreed to replace Warnock with a formal announcement expected soon. The game was a drab affair with Josh Coburn giving the visitors the leead before Grady Diangana equalised for the hosts in the second half.
West Brom’s Valerien Ismael: “It was a frustrating afternoon for us. Our quality in the last third wasn’t good enough and our crosses were too wide, or too long or the last passes were too short. We needed more quality in the last third to win. I think it was a difficult one because our opponents played with a back six! A 6-2-2 formation was something new for me so we needed to be really clinical in the last third because there were a lot of bodies around.”
Middlesbrough’s Neil Warnock: “I am disappointed how it’s ended up but nothing surprises me really.” he added. “I found out this morning with a call to say they were going in a different direction. I felt I deserved a bit more than that. It’s not to be and I wish them all the best because it’s a great club, with super players. Whoever comes in will get a great set of lads and will get some support in the transfer window. I think the new man will be given what he wants to get three or four players in.”
