Tony Pulis leaves as manager of Middlesbrough

Manager of Middlebrough Tony Pulis has left his role at the club after his contract expired this week.

Boro decided to part company with Pulis after the club missed out on the Sky Bet Championship play-offs, finishing the season seventh, a point behind Derby.

The club confirmed on Friday morning that Pulis’ contract would not be renewed, ending his 18-month reign on Teesside.

A club statement read: “Middlesbrough FC can confirm that the contract of manager Tony Pulis will not be extended.”

Pulis arrived at the Riverside Stadium in December 2017 to replace Garry Monk at the helm and attempt to drag an expensively-assembled squad back into the Premier League at the first time of asking in the wake of relegation.
