Bournemouth’s Manager

Jonathan Woodgate has recently taken charge of Championship side AFC Bournemouth just 2 days after the sacking of manager Jason Tindall. Woodgate is contracted with the club up until the end of the season; however, it is quite clear that Bournemouth do seek other alternatives, one Thierry Henry is reportedly on the list.

Woodgate was born on the 22nd of January 1980 and grew up in Middlesbrough, being at the same time a huge supporter of that club. Aged 13, he joined his beloved Boro’s youth academy as a centre defender, the position he would fulfil throughout the whole of his career. During the end of his 3 years there, his family had conflict with the club as his future at the club looked uncertain, causing a fallout between Woodgate/his family and the club. This moved Woodgate onto Leeds United in 1996 as a 16/17-year-old.

One year on, Woodgate helped Leeds pursue an FA Youth cup victory and following the impressive campaign, he made his professional debut for the club just months later in a one all draw against Nottingham Forest. Just another couple of months later, the central defender bagged his first professional league goal.

5 years into his first team career with Leeds, Woodgate was riddled with injuries and so his no. of appearances each season had gradually reduced. This did not put Newcastle United off, as they were prepared to pay a fair fee of £9million in the January transfer window of the 2002/2003 season. Just 28 league games into his Magpie career, he suffered an injury once more, but what followed during this injury shocked the football world.

Real Madrid, Los Blancos, Los Merengues, surprisingly had signed Woodgate in August of 2004 for just under £14million. Its fair to say that despite Woodgate by no means being a bad footballer, this move was destined to be a failure for both parties and throughout the 1st season, he did not make a single appearance. That came a year later on the 22nd of September 2005, against Athletic Bilbao, however in a day that was made for him, he scored an own goal and was then sent off. By February 2006, he was in fine form, establishing himself as a regular, but then came another injury, another setback, needing surgery on his back and missing the World Cup.

In the rest of his career, he re-joined Boro, before joined Tottenham Hotspur for the 2008/09, 09/10 and 10/11 seasons, making 50 appearances. He then proceeded to finish his career at Middlesbrough after joining for a 3rd time before retiring as a 36-year-old in 2016.

In 2017, Woodgate came back into the game of football as a coach for Middlesbrough and following the departure of manager Tony Pulis in 2019, Woodgate was appointed as manager after huge speculation. This lasted less than a year as fans and board members were worried that relegation was looming, therefore he was sacked.
