Pogatetz happy playing for Middlesbrough fans
"We have had some tough times over the last two years but we got through it and now I want to be here when we have success. I'm really excited about the future here.
"We really enjoy our life here," Pogatetz added. "My family likes it here and my eldest daughter has started to go to nursery so we're really settled.
"I enjoy playing for the club, I always enjoy going to work. It's important for me that my family are settled. I really want to be here. I hope I can achieve some great things with the team - that's my dream."
