Liam Rosenior has snubbed the chance to become a part of new Middlesbrough boss Jonathan Woodgate’s coaching staff to stay at Brighton. The 34-year-old has become a big part of the Seagulls’ set-up, working alongside Under-23s boss Simon Rusk since he completed his UEFA Pro coaching licence.

However, after initially being linked with the Boro job, which was left vacant after Tony Pulis departed the Riverside Stadium at the end of the season, Rosenior was then tipped to form part of Woodgate’s backroom staff.
However, the former Bristol City, Fulham, Reading, Hull and Seagulls full-back has opted to remain in his role at the Amex Stadium and will also continue his punditry work with Sky Sports. Woodgate has brought in his former Tottenham and Leeds team-mate Robbie Keane as his assistant, while Leo Percovich is installed as first-team coach and former player Danny Coyne is the new goalkeeper coach.
