Karanka proud in defeat

Middlesbrough head coach Aitor Karanka said he was proud of his side despite exiting the FA Cup at the quarter-final stage.

The Teessiders lost out to goals from David Silva and Sergio Aguero as Manchester City progressed through to the last four of the competition with a 2-0 victory at the Riverside.

"It is easy to say that the best team won, but I am really proud of my players - they made an amazing effort," Karanka told BBC Sport. "This is the way we need to keep competing because we will win more than lose.

"The past two games were awful for us so I was a bit concerned about the atmosphere when they scored the first goal so quickly, but they keep going, with high pressure, trying to win back the ball," he added. "As a coach you can't be more proud of your players. I have told them now that I take much more positive things than negative."
