Boro set to announce Jonathan Woodgate as new manager
Jonathan Woodgate is set to be announced as the next manager of Middlesbrough FC following Tony Pulis' departure.
The 39-year-old held initial talks with Boro chairman Steve Gibson three weeks ago, with the details finalised at Rockcliffe yesterday.
Former Leeds and Tottenham striker Robbie Keane has been reported to be joining Woodgate as part of his backroom staff.
The Sun reports that Keane will take up a coaching role at Boro, combining his assistant managerial duties to Mick McCarthy as part of the Ireland job, with the coaching role at Boro.
Former assistant manager Steve Round will return to Boro, joined alongside fan favourite Leo Percovich who will return as goalkeeping coach following a successful spell under Aitor Karanka.
