  • Steve Agnew: 'I believe we will stay in the Premier League'

"I see myself as being a creative coach, slowly but surely I know I'm capable of drip-feeding ideas into the group that will pay dividends", he said. "I have a clear view of exactly what's needed and that's what I aim to deliver".

For the hosts, winger Gaston Ramirez has scored two goals in 20 Premier League outings as Middlesbrough bid to fend off relegation on their return to the Promised Land. But today the players have trained well and we look forward to the weekend.

Assistant manager Agnew was handed the reins after Aitor Karanka was sacked by Middlesbrough on Thursday following a 10-game winless league run that saw the club slide down the table to 19th, three points from safety.

Jose Mourinho has offered sarcastic approval of Aitor Karanka's departure as Middlesbrough boss this week, claiming "he deserved to be sacked" for his success.

Mourinho was asked if it had been a case of player power undoing the work of Karanka, in the same way that speculation has suggested Claudio Ranieri's Leicester reign was ended.

'In the first year he arrived, the team was going into League One and he saved the team.

Note: Manipur and Goa have been marked in red because at the time of writing, no party was in a position to form the government. However, Congress MLA Thounaojam Shyam Kumar, who has reportedly joined the BJP, was conspicuous by his absence.

"I know people are cynical when you say that a decision was mutual, but he wasn't sacked".

The 32-year-old, along with January returnee Patrick Bamford, also played no part in the subsequent FA Cup quarter-final loss to Manchester City as Karanka stated his desire for "18 fighters".

"[Joe] lives in Bristol - when I made the phone call, he was in the auto and was here six hours later, that tells you all you need to know", said Agnew.

"Steve could be a surprise number one".

Meanwhile, Boro have announced that Joe Jordan has been appointed to help caretaker boss Steve Agnew.
