Things might not be going to plan for Middlesbrough this season, and a trip down memory lane hasn’t really helped supporters.

Teesside Live writer Anthony Vickers posted on social media that today is the sixth anniversary of Aitor Karanka’s appointment as Middlesbrough manager.

The Spaniard arrived after being number two to Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid, and was responsible for one of the most exciting times in recent years at the Riverside.

After consolidating the Teessiders’ place in the Championship, he built toward promotion from the Championship – something which he achieved in his third season in charge.

Karanka looked to have found an effective formula in the Premier League as well, but as the season unfolded the wheels seemed to come off somewhat at the Riverside, leading the Spaniard to leave his post and Middlesbrough to leave their top flight hopes behind.

Despite the way his spell in charge ended, Aitor Karanka remains a largely popular figure around Teesside for the work that he did, and news of his anniversary has left fans feeling nostalgic.

Here’s what some supporters had to say on social media.
