In what was football’s worst kept secret since last night, Middlesbrough have officially confirmed the appointment of Chris Wilder as their new manager.

It has seemingly been in the works for weeks, but yesterday morning Neil Warnock was informed that his services as Boro’s boss would no longer be required following their clash with West Bromwich Albion at The Hawthorns – a match they ended up drawing 1-1.

Warnock’s departure was confirmed shortly after the final whistle was blown and it was made clear in his post-match press conference that another figure had already agreed to take charge – that man being Wilder.

In what year did Mark Viduka join Middlesbrough?

The ex-Sheffield United man had been out of work since departing the Blades in March of this year and he has clearly been waiting for the right opportunity to get back into management.

Wilder could have potentially waited for a Premier League club but it is Boro who he has headed to, and it’s been confirmed that his sidekick Alan Knill will be joining him at the Riverside as assistant manager.

Middlesbrough fans have been reacting to the official news that Wilder is the man to step into Warnock’s shoes in the dugout and there seems to be a majority delight from supporters on social media.
