Who do Boro look to next in search for EPL return?

Next Manager Betting & Transfers

Middlesbrough are on now on the hunt for a new manager as they parted company with Tony Pulis this week. The two parties had talks on Friday and things probably didn’t pan out as well as Pulis would have wanted them too.

Middlesbrough claimed a seventh-place finish in the Championship this season, missing out on the playoffs and therefore promotion. That could be a costly failure for the club.

Six match losing streak crushed Boro

There were positives from Middlesbrough, who did have the joint-best defensive record in the Championship. However, given the defensive-minded style of Pulis, they were the lowest scores of the finishers in the top half of the table. Despite winning five of their last six games, they came up short.

The damage in their promotion push really happened in a six-match losing streak in early March through early April. Pulis took charge of the Teessiders in December 2017 and he did get them to the playoff semifinals last year where they lost out to Aston Villa.

Costly miss on promotion

Financially they really needed promotion this season. That is because their parachute payments received by clubs for two years following relegation from the Premier League will now cease for the 2019/20 season.

So Boro need to look for a new fit for the club. Former Real Madrid defender Jonathan Woodgate is the early 11/10 favourite with William Hill in Next Middlesbrough manager betting* (betting odds taken from William Hill on May 17th, 2019 at 5:04 pm).

Celtic targets in the mixer

Former Brighton man Chris Hughton, who was sacked at the end of the season, as the 3/1 second favourite* (betting odds taken from William Hill on May 17th, 2019 at 5:04 pm).

Hughton has had his name heavily linked with a move to Celtic. Another of the names linked with Celtic, current England Women’s boss Phil Neville is a longer 25/1 shot* (betting odds taken from William Hill on May 17th, 2019 at 5:04 pm)

Aitor Karanka is at 10/1 to make a return to the Riverside with Michael Reiziger and Danny Cowley at 8/1* (betting odds taken from William Hill on May 17th, 2019 at 5:04 pm)
