Boro may be deep in relegation trouble but their manager insists they are ‘in a really good moment’ as they face Manchester City in the FA Cup quarter-finals
As befits a man with an apparently inbuilt resistance to compromise and suspicion of delegation, Aitor Karanka does not really do shades of grey. His horribly goal-shy Middlesbrough side are preparing for an FA Cup quarter-final at home to Manchester City at a moment when they have dropped into the Premier League’s bottom three and gone 10 league games without a win.
As awkward questions about his job security intensify and the postponement of Saturday’s scheduled relegation six-pointer against Sunderland at the Riverside threatens to leave Boro playing league catch up, Karanka might have been expected to view the Cup as something of a poisoned chalice.
