The Boro boss says he could not have imagined working with the likes of the Ghanaian at the club few years back
Middlesbrough coach Aitor Karanka is delighted to have Ghana winger Albert Adomah in his squad for the upcoming season.
Adomah joined Boro from Bristol City in August 2013, three months before the arrival Karanka.
Middlesbrough, who make a return to the English Premier League this season after seven years in the lower division, have stepped up their preparations with the acquisition of the likes of Alvaro Negredo and Victor Valdes.
“We have an amazing group and have some really good players, and I am really looking forward to the season,” Karanka told his club’s official website.
“If someone had [said] to me when I arrived here two years ago that I would be able to sign and work with the players we have brought in and players like [Adam] Clayton and Adomah, I wouldn’t have believed them.
“Everyone is expecting to win every single game but for me, the most important thing, especially for the new players who have come in, is that they feel they are arriving together in a tight group and they are doing really well.”
Adomah, a member of Ghana’s team at the 2014 Fifa World Cup, netted six times in 43 outings as Boro secured promotion last season.
Karanka’s charges open their league campaign with a home clash against Stoke City on August 13.
