Aitor Karanka seems unhappy with Everyone

It seems Aitor Karanka is unhappy with everyone on the planet at the moment. It was not a long time back when he had a go at Boro supporters and as if it was not enough, he decided to do the same to Boro owners yesterday.


Karanka reckons his employers have not cooperated with him as much as they should have and it’s because of the lack of cooperation from their side that he couldn’t form a side that he wanted to during the winter transfer window.
