Karanka’s joy: Boro thrilled with Adomah’s AFCON axe

Middlesbrough manager Aitor Karanka has been handed a boost to start the New Year after Albert Adomah was left out of Ghana’s squad for the upcoming African Cup of Nations.

The 26-year-old flanker failed to make the cut when Ghana coach Avram Grant slashed his squad down to 26 players for a training camp ahead of the tournament, which will be held in Equatorial Guinea.

However, Karanka will be delighted to have Adomah available for a key run of matches and stressed the importance of the role the flanker plays in the squad earlier this season.

“He is very important because, like I said last season, he is a leader,” said Boro’s boss.

“He is a leader on the pitch and off the pitch and as a player he is the kind of player that when he is on the pitch you have a lot of options.

“He can play in a lot of positions and for this reason – as a person, as a player, as a leader – he is a very important player for us.”
