Manager Profile

Time at Club:





Karanka stepped in to take control of Championship outfit Nottingham Forest following the sacking of manager Mark Warburton who was given his marching orders on New Years Eve 2017.

Handed an assistant manager position under Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid in 2010, Aitor Karanka was given his first taste of management in 2013 when he took of Championship side Middlesbrough.

The Spaniard orchestrated a return to the Premier League for the North East club, after winning the Championship in 2015/16, but was sacked 27 games into the following season, with Boro 19th in the table with just four wins all season.

Aitor Karanka Quotes

If we score goals and win games people will come to support us.

If one day I am successful, if one day I am sacked, it's because I do things my way. So I am going to do (select) my shape and I am going to pick my players and I am going to be successful or a failure doing things my way. For that reason I am not going to change because the chairman or the crowd (ask me).

Managers don't have dreams. It's the players who dream; about playing in the Premier League, winning the Champions League. The life of a manager is different. You can only think about the day-to-day.
