Middlesbrough SACK Chris Wilder after losing to Coventry with club languishing in 22nd place in Championship

, Middlesbrough SACK Chris Wilder after losing to Coventry with club languishing in 22nd place in Championship

MIDDLESBROUGH have sacked manager Chris Wilder after 11 months in charge.

The Championship side are currently languishing in the bottom three after just two wins from their opening 11 league matches.

Wilder has been sacked after a poor start to the season

And a 1-0 defeat to Coventry on Saturday proved to be the final straw for the ex-Sheffield United boss.

A statement from the club read: “Middlesbrough Football Club have terminated the contract of manager Chris Wilder with immediate effect.

“Leo Percovich will take over first team affairs in the interim basis, assisted by Craig Liddle, Mark Tinkler and Lee Cattermole.

“The club would like to place on record its thanks to Chris and his staff for all their hard work over the past 11 months.”

Wilder arrived at Boro with the pedigree of helping Sheffield United secure promotion back in 2019.

He helped The Blades to ninth in the Premier League in 2020, before being dismissed the following season.

Arriving at Boro in November last year, Wilder’s side narrowly missed out on the play-offs as they finished seventh back in May.

But they have been fighting at the wrong end of the table from the start of the new campaign.

They then picked up wins over Swansea and Sunderland, but another run of three games without a win has seen Wilder dismissed.
