Middlesbrough fired Chris Wilder after 11 months in charge at the Riverside Stadium

The bottom-placed Boro team fell 1-0 at Coventry on Saturday, and the team is now 22nd in the standings with only two wins.

According to a statement posted on the club’s official website: “The Middlesbrough Football Club has immediately terminated Chris Wilder’s employment.

“With assistance from Craig Liddle, Mark Tinkler, and Lee Cattermole, Leo Percovich will oversee first team operations on an interim basis.

“The club would like to take this opportunity to congratulate Chris and his team for all their hard work over the previous 11 months,” it says.

On November 7, 2021, only one day after Neil Warnock departed the club amicably following a mediocre start to the season, Wilder took over at the Riverside Stadium.

With six victories in his first 10 league games, the 55-year-old manager put Boro back on track, but they ultimately missed out on a spot in the Championship play-offs by five points.

With the departure of the former Sheffield United manager, one-third of Championship teams have had a management change since the season’s beginning.

All of the following managers—Alex Neil, who left Sunderland to take over at Stoke, and Paul Warne, who left Rotherham to take over for Liam Rosenior at Derby—have been fired.

Throughout his lengthy professional playing career, Christopher John Wilder had time with the following teams: Sheffield United (twice), Rotherham United, Notts County, Bradford City, Brighton & Hove Albion, and Halifax Town. Additionally, he spent time on loan at five teams.

Before being hired by Sheffield United, he managed Alfreton Town, Halifax Town (where he served as the club’s final manager before going out of business), Oxford United, and Northampton Town.
