Middlesbrough Chair Working With 'Game's Biggest Powerbrokers' On Rebuild
League Championship club Middlesbrough Chair Steve Gibson is "working with two of the game's biggest powerbrokers to rebuild" the team, according to TRIBAL FOOTBALL. Gibson has confirmed that he is "working closely" with former ManU and Chelsea CEO Peter Kenyon and "leading agent Jorge Mendes." Both Kenyon and Mendes "played a major role in the appointment" of new Middlesbrough Manager Aitor Karanka, as well as a "recent link-up with La Liga giants Atletico Madrid." Gibson: "I felt that I wasn't perhaps being challenged enough within the club. I wanted an outsider's view to come in and have a look and tell us where he thought we needed improving, and he's been a great asset in that capacity" (TRIBAL FOOTBALL, 11/16).
