Fabrizio Ravanelli wants to be the new Middlesbrough boss
Gibson has yet to decide who will be in charge at the Riverside next season following Boro’s relegation from the Premier League.
Steve Agnew, who was appointed interim head coach after Aitor Karanka’s departure in March, has held discussions with Gibson about next season but speculation persists that Garry Monk or Nigel Pearson could be appointed.
