Chris Wilder as Middlesbrough’s new boss

Middlesbrough have announced Chris Wilder as their new manager after Neil Warnock was sacked.

Chris Wilder

, who has not been working since the end of the 2020-21 season when he left the nearly relegated Blades, can start working for


on Tuesday.

The duration of the contract has not been revealed yet but the manager will have his long-time assistant Alan Knill by his side.

A Middlesbrough statement said:

"The club are delighted to confirm the appointment of Chris Wilder as our new manager."

Neil Warnock

was aware of the club’s decision to dismiss him before their battle against

West Brom

in the Champions League on Saturday. He accepted and was willing to take charge for the match that came down to a 1-1 draw.

He said at full-time:

"I found out this morning. First when I read the papers and then a phone call. Nothing surprises me in football anymore.

"I've been hearing about who's coming in for a few weeks now so it's been hard behind the scenes. But that's the industry we're in. I probably deserved a little bit more than that."

Middlesbrough are sitting 14th in the Championship after 17 matches, four points behind the play-off spots notwithstanding Warnock departing after a three-game winless run.

Wilder is going to have his first game at home following the November 20’s international break.
