Boro officially unveiled Jonathan Woodgate as the man to head up the new backroom team at Boro.

In a statement on twitter Boro revealed Woodgate will head up a coaching staff with a backroom team including Irish assistant manager Robbie Keane and former goalkeeping coach Leo Percovich with former Boro and Wales keeper Danny Coyne returning as goalkeeping coach.

The full statement reads:

“Middlesbrough Football Club are delighted to confirm that Jonathan Woodgate will head up a new-look senior coaching team.

Woodgate has been appointed as the club’s new head coach and has agreed a three-year contract.

Our former captain will be joined by his ex-Leeds and Tottenham team-mate, and current Republic of Ireland assistant manager Robbie Keane, Leo Percovich, who was previously on the coaching staff at the club from 2013-2017, and one-time Boro man Danny Coyne, as goalkeeping coach."

The official statement then continues, thus...

"There was huge interest in the coaching positions following the departure of Tony Pulis and in a robust process the club spoke with a number of potential candidates both in the UK and abroad.

It was during this procedure that it became clear that Jonathan was the outstanding candidate to head up the new structure, and his staff bring a wealth of experience and knowledge.

Jonathan’s vision is very much aligned to our own for the club as we look to develop a new identity.”
