Boro appoint Pulis

Middlesbrough have named former West Bromwich Albion and Stoke City boss Tony Pulis as their new manager.

He succeeds Garry Monk in the role after he was sacked following the weekend victory at Sheffield Wednesday.

Pulis, 59, was similarly dismissed by the Baggies last month after ten league games without a victory.

"I wanted a challenge - a real challenge - and this reminds me so much of Stoke when I went there with Peter Coates," he told BBC Sport. "I wanted to come at this time because we have so many games in a short space of time, and I can assess everything."

His opening game in charge will be against promotion rivals Aston Villa this weekend.
