Mowbray plots way ahead
Middlesbrough boss Tony Mowbray won't be leaving the Riverside despite their recent dismal sequence of results.
Struggling Boro suffered a seventh defeat in their last eight games at home to Brighton at the weekend to slip even further down the table and into tenth place.
However, Mowbray is along with chairman Steve Gibson and chief executive Neil Bausor currently exploring exactly how a return to the Premier League can be achieved ahead of more proposed financial cuts.
"I've had conversations with the chairman along the lines of how are we going to get a team together to compete and get out of this league? Hopefully we have found some solutions and will find more of those in the summer," Mowbray told the Northern Echo. "It will undoubtedly be about reductions because of Financial Fair Play. It will come down, so it will be more reductions and more reductions.
"The bottom line is, it is a conundrum. How are we going to get a team to get out of the league with not spending any more money but actually cutting more money from the budget?," he continued. "We have to find the answer, come up with a solution. That's the answer if we have any ambition."
