Chris Wilder was named the new Middlesbrough manager and outlined his vision to get the club back to the Premier League. He revealed that he is keen to work with the director of football Kieran Scott, chief executive Neil Bausor as well as owner Steve Gibson. He also addressed the claims that there was a clash with the Sheffield United hierarchy in his final months. Wilder also said that he was impressed with the vision of the men in charge of the club.
“There has been a lot of talk about me absolutely wanting to run everything – it is complete nonsense,” new Middlesbrough boss Chris Wilder said. “I just wanted to work with good people who had the same vision and ideas and ethics of how I see a club running. Steve, Kieran, and Neil were all on the same page going forward. I think the reason I’ve been chosen is they like my work in my past, whether it’s my personality or the way my team played. Obviously, there is a reason they wanted me and vice-versa.”
“You go into the meeting wondering how the owner is going to be, having been in the Premier League but not managing to have the success they should be having. You’re wondering what his appetite for it all is,” he added. “But he was incredibly eager and positive about getting back into the big time. Being in that big league is the place to be and we will all do what we can to get there.”
