Neil Warnock: Middlesbrough boss to remain at Riverside next season

Neil Warnock guided Middlesbrough to Championship survival at the end of the 2019-20 season

Neil Warnock will stay on as manager of Championship club Middlesbrough next season.

Warnock, who replaced Jonathan Woodgate as boss on 23 June, guided Boro to 17th having battled against relegation for much of the season.

It was uncertain whether the 71-year-old would remain in charge for the 2020-21 campaign and had taken some time away to decide on his future.

Assistants Kevin Blackwell and Ronnie Jepson will also be staying on.

The pair were brought in when Warnock was first appointed, with Boro 21st in the table at the time.

They went on to win four of their eight remaining games, although he was unable to oversee a first victory at the Riverside Stadium since Boxing Day.

“I’ve really enjoyed myself since I’ve come up here,” Warnock told the club website.
