Boro manager Aitor Karanka has revealed that he never had a problem with winger Albert Adomah amidst transfer speculation, reports BBC Sport.
The winger has made 81 appearances for Middlesbrough, scoring 18 times in the process and is no doubt one of the side’s most valuable assets.
Fans at the Riverside Stadium will certainly be hoping that he can become integral in their team once again as they build on their good start to the season.
Adomah, 27, handed in a transfer request in the summer transfer window as he tried to push for a move away from the North-East club, shocking Middlesbrough fans in the process.
However, head coach Aitor Karanka has stated that he never had any issues with the winger who scored in Middlesbrough’s 3-1 win at home to Brentford yesterday.
Adomah will remain a Middlesbrough player until at least January and Karanka is hoping that he will continue to make a big impact at the club striving for promotion to the Premier League.
The Ghanaian winger had previously missed the last three games before his appearance at the Riverside last night, however, he is very much in the plans of the club as they push on in the Sky Bet Championship.
Speaking about Adomah’s return to first team action, Karanka said to BBC Sport: “I’m pleased for him and he deserves it, the last two weeks I’m sure weren’t good for him.
“He has been very important many times for the team, he’s always an important player.
“I said two or three weeks ago that I had no problem with Albert.”
Karanka and Adomah will both look to rekindle their working relationship after a blip in his career.
Whether or not Adomah will still want to leave when the January transfer window opens is unclear, but for now, it’s time for the winger to get his head down and start working hard for a promising Middlesbrough side.
