Robbie Keane Gone From Middlesbrough As Woodgate Sacked For Warnock

Robbie Keane Gone From Middlesbrough As Woodgate Sacked For Warnock

Being replaced by Neil Warnock is not something you want on your CV. Things haven't been going well for the Jonathan Woodgate Robbie Keane tandem at Middlesbrough this season. Boro sit in 21st position in the Championship table, out of the relegation zone on goal difference. On Saturday, a 3-0 home defeat to Swansea signaled any improvements made before the lockdown may have been short lived.

It proved the final straw for the club. Middlebrough announced this morning that Woodgate had been sacked less than a season into his management career, to be replaced by Warnock. In fairness, nothing says "we're changing direction" than going from failed, young manager to Neil Warnock.

The club's announcement originally made no mention of Keane, but it was clear the writing was on the wall for Ireland's record goalscorer straight away and the Daily Mail's Craig Hope confirmed that he had been informed that he will also be leaving.

It's a big setback in Keane's young coaching career. He had previously lost his job as part of the Irish coaching set up when Stephen Kenny brought it his own team.
