• Middlesbrough manager’s future still in doubt after FA Cup exit
• Karanka under scrutiny for dropping Stewart Downing and Patrick Bamford
Aitor Karanka’s future as Middlesbrough’s manager remains uncertain following the FA Cup quarter-final defeat to Manchester City at The Riverside but, outwardly at least, he remains typically defiant.
“City showed they’re one of the best teams,” said Karanka after goals from David Silva and Sergio Aguero propelled Pep Guardiola’s side into the semi finals. “But I’m really proud of my players because they’ve given a massive effort, from the first minute until the end. We were trying to apply high pressure and the effort has been amazing.”
