Neil Warnock: Middlesbrough manager to stay at club for 2021/22 season

Neil Warnock will manage Middlesbrough next season after signing a contract extension with the club.

After guiding Middlesbrough to safety last season, Warnock agreed to stay at the club for this season and has now committed to a further year.

Kevin Blackwell and Ronnie Jepson will also remain at the club with Warnock.

Warnock will enter a 21st year as a manager. He has taken charge of more than 1,500 games with 18 different clubs.


He is seeking a record ninth promotion, with Middlesbrough currently five points off the play-off places with 12 games remaining.

Boro comeback sinks Coventry

Substitute George Saville made an instant impression as he struck an 87th-minute winner to earn Middlesbrough a 2-1 victory at lowly Coventry on Tuesday.

Substitute Saville poked home from close range two minutes after being brought on to move Boro within three points of the play-off places before Wednesday’s fixtures.

Grant Hall had earlier opened his Middlesbrough account with a fine header from a Paddy McNair free-kick to cancel out an early own goal from Anfernee Dijksteel that had given Coventry the lead.

Saville’s strike earned Boro a third win in five games, a run which has put their top-six hopes back on track having slipped off the pace with five defeats in their previous seven.
