Popular Middlesbrough figure responds as club reflect on memorable game

Published

on

With no football for the foreseeable future, clubs have been doing different things to keep fans entertained in this enforced break.

For Middlesbrough, they decided to look back at one of their most memorable recent results, the 1-1 draw against Brighton back in May 2016 which saw the Teesside outfit return to the Premier League, by live tweeting the game.

Going into the final day of the campaign, both sides knew victory would see them win promotion, with Boro’s superior goal difference meaning they only needed a draw.

And, that’s exactly what they got, with Aitor Karanka’s side picking up a point on a tense afternoon at the Riverside.

One of the main men from that day was keeper Dimi Konstantopoulos, who stood firm to preserve Boro’s draw and whilst he wasn’t forced into anything too spectacular, he was a reassuring presence at the back.

The experienced stopper is fondly remembered by the Boro faithful following his performances in that promotion-winning season and he took to social media to respond after the club tweeted that they had won promotion with a short message.

The verdict

Boro fans will have enjoyed looking back at that Brighton game as it ended a seven-year stay outside the top-flight and it was a really dramatic afternoon.

Karanka’s men were superb in that campaign and Konstantopoulos was crucial to the success the enjoyed, with plenty of good performances.

So, he clearly has a soft spot for the club and it’s a day the keeper, and everyone connected to Boro, will love to look back on.
